Hi Ronan,

as I wrote those PZF models are not recommended by us for Norway (and 
other locations far away from the DCF77 sender), so it is completely 
correct that Novacom offered you an UA509 model instead of a PZF 
version. In very few locations "far away" it may be OK to install a PZF, 
but generally we would not advise this.

I will send you a detailed reply via mail, as this is getting Off Topic :-)

Kind regards,
