# define CLOCK_LOCAL /* from ntpd.mak */
# define CLOCK_HOPF_SERIAL /* device 38, hopf DCF77/GPS serial line
# define CLOCK_HOPF_PCI /* device 39, hopf DCF77/GPS PCI-Bus receiver */
# define CLOCK_NMEA
# define CLOCK_PALISADE /* from ntpd.mak */
# define CLOCK_DUMBCLOCK
# define CLOCK_TRIMBLEDC
# define CLOCK_TRIMTSIP 1
# define CLOCK_JUPITER
