A few hours after the leapsecond I made a preliminary waterfall display
of MSF, HBG and DCF77 available.
Meanwhile I have made a "real" webpage out of this, with some more
pictures and explanations:
Interestingly, it seems that (at least?) three things went wrong:
- HBG seems to have completely missed the leapsecond, inserting it
somewhere during the next 10 minutes.
(I originally misinterpreted the triple carrier-interruption as
a special leap-second mark, but according to the documentation this
is actually their top-of-the-hour mark.)
- Since the leap second, MSF has been broadcasting a UTC-UT1 offset
of +400 ms, although this should be +300 ms per the IERS bulletin.
- The 'time pips' in Deutschlandfunk's signal were early by about
Any comments (and corrections) on this would be appreciated...
