  • Sony ICF-470W

    So, what does the weather function do on a clock like this? Is there some kind of display, or is it just another radio channel that you can tune to? I'm rather curious.

    It is a special radio frequency

      Aww, that's a shame. This model is actually an interesting bridge between the old Sony flip clock my mother had and the LED display Dream Machine one she had later. Except for the extra chunky buttons (and the orange one) I rather like the design.

        Howdy! That was one that I restored. I have done a few, but can never get weather channels to come in for my area. This one will be back up for sale soon as the user on Ebay is a non-payer...<sigh>...

          That's a shame. It is a pretty clock. I have no idea if this area has weather channel reception or not.
