I saw on the manual that you can replace the LED Colons with Neon ones. What type of neon indicators do I use? Is there a specific size and or voltage I need to look for? I really like the look of the clock with the neons instead of the LEDs. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

By default I use 4mm x 11mm or 4mm x 16mm. People try to use INS-1 or IN-3, but these are pretty hard to get good results with. I can stick a couple in the post to you if that helps.

That's right - I tried to replace the small neon bulbs of Dieter Wächter's "Blue Dream" with the INS-3 and finally gave up. Either they did flicker from the beginning or started to after a some days. They would have been nice because of the square glowing area but that's exactly what seems to cause problems...
