equipment is calibrated to the U.S. Government's
Atomic Clock in Colorado. The equipment is
attached to 48 telephone lines, so 48 simultaneous
callers can be serviced. This way, very few
busy signals are ever encountered.
The equipment itself sounds like a busy beehive.
Every time a call comes in, which happens
constantly, the equipment emits a quiet click.
In a typical one minute period, there could
be 200 clicks!
The Miami facility is located directly south of Miami International Airport in an ultra-secure telephone central office. Our temperature sensor is yards from the National Weather Service's official Miami airport sensor, so our live temperature readings usually match or come awfully close to the MIA official temperature. In Broward, our precise temperature sensor is located in Coral Springs. Our temperature-sensing
device samples the temperature several times
each minute. With precision accuracy, the
temperature is measured to one-tenth of each

utilize our temperature frequently, since
the National Weather Service provides
only hourly temperatures. 305-324-8811, 954-324-8811 and 954-748-4444 provide instantly accurate temperatures.
Our announcement system is completely digital.
It has the ability to rotate advertiser messages,
allowing more than one company to advertise
on the system at the same time. The first
caller hears the first message, the next caller
hears another message, and so on. Then, the
messages repeat for subsequent callers in
the same sequence.
The friendly lady who announces the time
and the temperature lives in Chicago. We don't
know her name. She exists here in South Florida on
a set of microchips. The man you hear on our
advertisements is former Miami radio personality
Dave Ryder, who lives in Coral Springs,
operates several business ventures, including
the company that manages this service.
