While I at the Dayton Hamvention, I purchased the new Geochron Digital 4K UHD “shack accessory”

DX Engineering sells the new Georchron for $399. I have owned a Geochron Standard mechanical wall clock since 2011 and I have enjoyed it on my wall in my shack above my radios and displays.

The prices on new Geochron standard editions have increased mightily to $1,895 currently. I paid no where close to that for mine in 2011.

Well, I am enjoying my new Geochron 4K so much that I will sell my Geochron Standard edition (listed on QRZ.com for $850)

The new Geochron 4K comes with everything you need (not shown is the included HDMI cable) to couple it to a display (computer monitor or TV) It really displays well on a 4K LED television. Setup is very easy and only takes a moment. The Geochron 4K has built in WiFI so it can time synch over the internet if you enable that feature. There are easy menus that let you select various types of displays depending on your desires. I like the “Ham Radio” display. You can also chose Aircraft display and it overlays a map of all of the current flights onto the Geochron display.

My Geochron is connected to a 43″ Samsung 4K LED television as seen above.¬†

This is a terrific and affordable “shack accessory”. DXers can benefit from seeing the “terminator” in real time and it help you know where you are likely to have grey line propagation.

Plus, it just looks way cool!

What do you think?
