    Careful comparison with the stopwatch between the new DCF-77 clock (radio 
    controlled by the DCF-77 Mainflingen atomic clock) I used for my 1 Feb 
    observations and 3 other DCF-clocks reveals that the new clock I used runs 0.40s 
    early.
    
    Hence my corrected Feb 1 data should read:
    
    28646 05 016A   4353 P 20080201183916260 17 75 1737049+862210 56 S
    19460 88 078A   4353 G 20080201184802230 17 75 0159416+430110 26 S
    
    I therefore ditched this clock and bought yet another DCF-77 clock yesterday. 
    That one does run synchrone with 2 other DCF-clocks I compared it to. 
    Interestingly, this one (a small 7 euro one from the HEMA) was much cheaper than 
    the one I had to ditch. So more expensive isn't always better, evidently.
