Have a look at
ftp://sol.wohnheim.uni-ulm.de/pub/linux/misc/dcf77-info-1.1.tar.gz

It contains an assorted list of different resources that are related
to receiving DCF77 signals. Among other things, it includes Harald
Koenig's DCF77 program, which I prefer over xntp because of its small
memory footprint. Does anybody know, if this program (or a similar
one) will work with Ulrich's patches? I would like to see a small
standalone receiver program that keeps system time in sync, but does
not have to distribute this information to any other host.
