I have looked more closely at the data from ntpd. With the modem cable I
get some data. ntpd complains abount bad data instead of no data:

assID=0 status=0505 clk_baddate, last_clk_baddate,
device="Meinberg DCF77 C51 or compatible",
poll=143, noreply=78, badformat=0, baddata=79, fudgetime1=10.000,
stratum=0, refid=DCFa, flags=0, refclock_time="<UNDEFINED>",
refclock_status="", refclock_format="Meinberg Standard",
refclock_states="*ILLEGAL DATE: 02:33:19 (100.00%); running time: 02:33:19"

Looks like bad timestamps get through the validation in the clock ?
