    As a backup, is it possible to buy radio-controlled clocks controlled by the
    DCF77 transmitter in the UK?
    
    Indeed, is it possible to pick up a signal strong enough from Germany to
    control a clock?  My feeling is that it is possible, at least in Southern
    England.  I remember picking up time signals from DIZ (?) in Nauen on HF
    back in the 1980s with no problems, but that was probably a more powerful
    signal.
