73 is the ASCII code for "I", 78 is "N", another 73 "I" and finally 84
stands for "T"... therefore 18.104.22.168 is "INIT"... there was a bug in
certain versions of NTP where the refid of the LOCALCLK driver was not
set correctly. If you really care about that, you can fudge the refid to
something else. IIRC it was only a display problem and had no other
Meinberg radio clocks: 25 years of accurate time worldwide

Stand alone ntp time servers and radio clocks based on GPS, DCF77 and
IRIG. Rackmount and desktop versions and PCI slot cards.
