only their blue dream clock is still available, and their thermometer.
I think they have stopped making new clock kits.. maybe slowly getting out of the business? not sure
I wonder of Pete's and others clocks have reduced their sales.
Their blacknwood clock is now available from the Chinese designer directly, no longer going through nocrotec. a new in-18 clock is NJ ow available from nixie world.. sort of as a replacement for the big blue dream clock.
It seems as if the black'n'wood clock has the DCF/GPS/AUX part in common with the Blue Dream IN-18. I know that in case of the Blue Dream the input filter must be modified depending on the radio service you're using - Dieter gave me most of the schematics plans of the Blue Dream except for the power supply.
DCF-77 has a time slot of 100ms (the smallest pulse width transferred) while GPS receivers typically have approx. 0.2ms (4800bits/s) which is a factor of 500 compared to DCF-77. The filter in the Blue Dream reliably shall filter out any remains of the 77kHz carrier and is normally fitted for DCF-77. You need to modify this filter when connecting a device with a significantly faster signal like a GPS receiver.
Please try to get the schematics for the bnwk2 and take a look into the relevant part...
that is very interesting.. that would totally explain why my clock didn't even notice the GPS, even though the GPS showed that it was locked in on a signal.
I would love to know how to make a GPS work with that clock. I gave the clock as a gift to a neighbor, but I would love to make it work with my GPS receiver. I have actually thought about buying another of those kits, LOVED that clock.. really did.
