My SOTA watch is not well
I have the Casio Wavecepter as shown in the thread above. Reading up about the watch on the Internet led me to discover that a common fault is constant resetting. I’ve had the reset problem but now the watch has stopped receiving time updates over RF. I can still set the time manually but I can’t trust the watch not to reset. The reset issue wasn’t such a headache when the watch could auto update with correct time.
I have asked Santa for a new radio controlled watch and I’ve been very good this year so I’m hopeful that a new watch will arrive soon
I got a clock from Mike 2E0YYY and it’s got lovely big easy-to-see numbers on it. The clock now lives in my MTR pack.
I have an old Timex RC Watch but the strap is really scruffy. I put the Timex watch on this morning in readiness for my Ingleborough G/NP-005 activation today and about 30 minutes later the strap broke Luckily I had another timepiece with me today.
BTW I qualified today’s activation with 200mW on the gentleman’s band, 30m
