The sangamo timer needs to know the latitude and longitude for dawn to dusk timing as its at different times depending where you are.

Can't see them ever actually changing it though.  They've been talking about it for as long as I can remember, certainly since the 80s

I assumed it was for a fit and forget type thing.  The automatic summer/winter are quite popular, but of course, will not update if summer/winter shcedules are changed, which they keep talking about.

One of the main reasons I was looking for a radio linked timer was to get automatic daylight saving time. I've discovered you can get this on some non-radio linked timers and have got one of these on order...

had to do a bit of googling to find out what this was all about,  not sure if its of any use but once used a sangamo (spelling) sunseeker or something that wanted to know its latitude and longitude would that have been doing a similar thing? As mentioned from memory it wasnt cheap.

Are there any low cost programmable time clocks that sync to the "Rugby" radio clock?

It seems very hard to find the right terms to google. Late last night I found some DIN rail mounted  timers/relays that did this but as I remember they were like £200 and I forgot to bookmark anyway.

By contrast I found a plug in timer on a german site (for their equivalent radio) that was nearer 30 euro.
