[ntp:questions] DRM: useless for NTP like services...

The Digital Radio Mondiale standard for long/medium/short-wave digital audio 
broadcasts (freely available for downloading as ETSI TS 101980) includes 
time data, but like with RDS and DVB, the data format specification is not 
really optimized towards high-precision clock synchronization and the DRM 
COFDM demodulator needed is significantly more complex than the AM receivers 
that decode the time signals listed above.

It is a shame that the NTP.org has not set up a working group to define 
packet formats for RDS / DVB / DRM / AMSS.
