Aha, but that ticking is just what I'd like when shortwave reception is 
bad and I can't hear what the time is.  On the pc, it should always be 
loud and clear no matter what atmospheric conditions are like.
Once the clock is syncronized, I have to be able to hear it for it to be 
of any value.
Maybe someone who knows DOS can compile a DOS version?

Do any of the other mentioned sites have a similar program?
