## Radio and modem clocks by convention have addresses in the 
## form 127.127.t.u, where t is the clock type and u is a unit 
## number in the range 0-3. 
##
## Most of these clocks require support in the form of a 
## serial port or special bus peripheral. The particular  
## device is normally specified by adding a soft link 
## /dev/device-u to the particular hardware device involved, 
## where u correspond to the unit number above. 
## 
## Generic DCF77 clock on serial port (Conrad DCF77)
## Address:     127.127.8.u
## Serial Port: /dev/refclock-u
##  
## (create soft link /dev/refclock-0 to the particular ttyS?)
