The timecode is Spectracom format 2.  I note by the way that
refclock_wwvb also supports the Netclock/GPS, so possibly this
*is* a GPS rather than WWVB clock -- I don't know if you would
be able to receive WWVB in Brazil, actually ...

Uh, I don't know what that means, I expected a link to /dev/term/b
or /dev/cua/b rather than the raw device, but if it works OK.

I think that's as far as I get; you need to find out exactly what
you're connecting to and what the various cables are doing.  There
are PDF manuals for various Spectracom clocks available on the
net if they might help.
