Looking at the picture the 2nd pulse seems 100 ms wide. If at plain
hours you get 3 pulses of 100 ms, and twice a day 4 such pulses, then
you are hearing the Swiss radio HBG on 75 kHz. The coding is very
compatible with the German DCF77. Drivers should be able to decode both,
unless they choke on the different minute markers.
