Welcome to the forum, T-Bird. :-!
I've noticed sometimes the alarm scare my cats if they are too close to the watch, not the hourly signal, though.
Hmmm......it seems that you may be onto to something.not one of my G's has the hourly time signal on, i'd just find myself looking at it (clock watching) every time it went off, and the day would go 3 times as slow as a result of that!
Wow, i had no idea, I feel so bad. The Hourly Time Signals scare my dog, I had to turn off all three Casios. The intence sounds were driving her out of the room. Anybody else??
