The first set of WWVB clocks that showed up in the 90's had
external antennas, among them Oregon Scientific and Sony.
Within a few years they all went with internal antennas and
got ever more compact. RC wristwatches are now common.

I can't make out the model number from my own web photos
so I'll dig around for the original clock and let you know.
