This is a "Radio Shack"  3" cube radio, what that we used in the 1970's to get an accurate time signal for determining accurate position of Polaris.

It appears to work, but I never go to listen to it back in the day, as I was always out on the backsight.  I really don't know what I am listening for.

Even at that, it makes a nice little desk or shelf ornament.

$10 or best offer - I will pay shipping to contiguous U.S.

I do not take credit cards, or PayPal, so payment will have to be by check, M.O., etc.

BEST EMAIL is: j l a s u r v e y (at) j u n o (dot) c o m          [[[[nospaces, use "@" symbol for "at" and use "." for "dot" - no "(

Are you sure this provides time information from WWV?

I thought this was the model designed for that purpose:

The image was taken from the Internet. In the event I need to log precise and accurate time, I use https://www.time.gov to set my fine Swiss watch and check for differences at the end of observation with the same source. Of course no DUP corrections are provided by the web site.

GeeOddMike is correct, I had both, the small cube is only for weather. I wish I knew what happened to my time cube...

I still use my Radio Shack time cube occasionally to perform solar observations to use with my GNSS data.  The combination works well.

Ooops, my bad then.  I think I have the other one around here somewhere.  I was offering this one as a test to see if I could actually post something in a meaningful manner.  Guess I failed on that too, as I didn't see my post listed on the opening page.
