Radio Clock for Raspberry pi 3 model b

Fri Jun 02, 2017 1:22 pm

Hi, I would like to try to use a Radio Clock on my raspberry pi model b, these are my needings:
1) not a diy, but a ready hardware to plug
2) usb connection or little enough to keeit closed into the raspberry box
3) I will use it in Italy, so I suppose that the best radio frequencies to listen will be from switzerland, germany and uk..

You want a Pollin DCF77 receiver.

You should be able to find some projects on the internets that show you how to connect that Pollin receiver to your RPi. I've driven one with an Arduino in the past.

It may be easiest to stick a £2 Arduino Nano between the Pollin receiver and your Raspberry.
