I just read that part again. It seem that you mart the best clock with
calibrate the other clocks are adjusted to fit. Unfortunately I do not
have a second clock.

However I got the statistics to work. If you happen to use a locale other
than en_US then you have to invoke it like this:

$ LANG=C awk -f peer.awk /path/to/logfiles

After using the stats to adjust the radio clock it seems to be only 0.3 ms
off. I will give it more time to settle before I decide on more adjusting.
