The Clock+ Library allows the synchronization of the Saia PCD® clock with various broadcast signals. It also supports the communication with various devices like Clock receivers, Meteo stations and GPS receivers.
The DCF77 signal is broadcasted in Germany and Switzerland. To use it a DCF77 receiver is needed. The receiver antenna should be placed outside a building but not necessary on the roof.
This signal is available over the whole word. To use it a GPS receiver is required. The receiver must be placed in order to have a 'visual' connection to the sky. In narrow streets it needs to be placed on the roof of the building.
