Whoah!! I'm not alone!

I picked up a dozen or so nixie tubes from a surplus place several years ago and have always intended to make them into a radio-controlled clock (using the Rugby MSF signal, for UK electronics geeks). I've got most of the parts, I've just never quite got round to putting them together yet... I might have known there'd be a community of kindred spirits out there on the net!

I love weird neon stuff and old electronics. I can remember using Geiger counters at school with dekatrons for the least significant two or three digits and a mechanical counter for the high end.

If I ever finish my clock I'll post pictures...
