The only info on the box is "Made in China" (big surprise, huh!) and
"Distributed by SWC, Bentonville, AR. 72716". That's Sam Walton Co. or
better known as Wal-Mart, Sam's Club, etc. Appearently SWC contracted with
the Chinese company for the clocks. The documentation only shows a model no.
(7041 - large & 21510 - small). I haven't looked at Wal-Mart but you could
probably find them there, if not now, maybe later. The box is 10"x13"x2.5",
is gray in color, and has "ATOMIC CLOCKS - COMBO PACK" on all four sides.

It has been my experience with Sam's and Wal-Mart that sometimes you can buy
the same product at Wal-Mart cheaper than Sam's.

BTW, they both locked on to WWVB and are working FB.
