Lacrosse Weather Station Pairing Fun

We have two Lacrosse 8418 "atomic" clocks that also tell you your indoor and outdoor temperatures which were like a buck each because they were missing the outdoor weather station.  Without the outdoor sensor, they chewed through batteries in about a day trying to find it.  So I ordered a single replacement outdoor gauge and did the pairing procedure (pop the batteries for both things at the same time) for the sensor with both clocks at the same time.  It took two tries, but now the sensor has been talking to both clocks for two weeks.  I was pleasantly surprised since I don't think using pairing multiple devices is even mentioned on their support site.  Might not work for anybody else and it's definitely an unlikely use case since these things are usually sold in pairs anyways.
