If I remember correctly we have already discussed this on the phone, and you
are using a RS-232-to-USB converter.

While this may work with a device which transmits an ASCII string (in spite
of the jitter introduced by the USB bus) I doubt NTP's RAW_DCF driver would
at all be able to decode the raw DCF77 time marks properly after they have
been transferred via USB.
