    Just a note,
    European observers can buy a DCF-77 clock, that get their time signal by
    radiowave from DCF-77 Mainflingen. They need not be expensive, I recently bought
    a 7 euro "Portland" one at a large Dutch chain store which works perfectly.
    Avoid the "Cresta" brand though, I have bad experience with those.
    For safety, synchronize it by forcing it to do so manually before each observing
