I have two of them. They are little travel alarms I bought for $10 each at 
Walgreens. The brand is "Living Solutions". The model is "C17D3403". I will 
make sure they are oriented properly and see if they are synced by tomorrow.

Actually, I bought two of these in the hope that one will die, so I can 
remove the radio module and play with it :-)

I read these a while back. Very informative.
