I bought a Robic model SC-800 stopwatch over 5 years ago.

It has 50 memory positions and 1/100 second accuracy.

I never have a problem picking up WWV on either 5 or 10 MHz, so
I always reset the watch to zero before each observation.
After the observation I can hit the split a few times on some WWV tick
and subtract to get the 0 time.

This is a "racing" stopwatch about 4 inches tall and 2 inches wide,
so it is easily hand-held.  It has two main buttons on the top, one
to start the stopwatch and the other to get a split time.  The split button
can easily be pushed with the thumb when the watch is held in the left
hand.  There are 4 mode, recall, etc. buttons on the front, so you can tell
the front from the back by feel in the dark.

It cost about $50 + S&H a couple of years ago.  I have a two? year old
catalog from RaceQuip, 378 Dublin Avenue, Columbus, Ohio 43215.
Toll free order phone (800) 678-7223.  FAX (614) 224-8413.

There are other models of Robic stopwatches in this catalog.
In my opinion, only the model SC-800 is suitable for satellite timing
purposes.
