======================================

Which contains the interesting statement:

  "The Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt PTB is entrusted by the Time 
Act to realise and disseminate legal time to the public. The most popular 
means is the transmission of standard frequency and time signals by the 
transmitter DCF77 (Working Group 4.42)."

DCF77 being the 77.5 kHz transmitter.

Cheers,
David
