Radio-controlled watches ... quality/area of North American coverage?
I'm wondering about how much of North America is covered by the Radio Control signals to keep RC watches accurate. There's a world map in the Seiko calalogue (see p. 8 http://www.seiko-watch.co.jp/purchase/pdf/ALL_2010a.pdf) that has a pretty skimpy amount of coverage over most of the western 2/3 of the USA, but looks like it misses Seattle and San Fransisco, and of course Chicago & New York are wa-a-ay out of range. The only Canadian coverage seems to be southern Alberta/Saskatchewan.
Is coverage really this limited in North America?
Can anyone comment on how far north into western Canada the coverage extends?
Do different models (Citizen?) have better coverage?
I'm contemplating an RC/solar watch in the not-too-distant future, and want to know if I'll actually be getting the radio waves. Thanks in advance ... (edit: I have attached a hard-to-see photo from the 2009-2010 catalogue with the same photo, but you get a better image by clicking on the link above.)
