Description :
DCF77 is a Very Low Frequency (VLF) emitter located in Mainflingen, Germany, about 400 km away from Besançon, France. The objective of the collected data is to measure the time of flight of the 77.5 kHz signal with respect to GPS 1 PPS used as reference, and assess the dependence with ionospheric conditions.
