Default DK-3060 Instruments Standard Time and Frequency Receiver DCF77

Hi All,
I recently acquired this instrument as an unexpected part of a job lot and would like to see if I can get it working.
DK-3060 is/was a Danish company who seem to have made a number of standard frequency receivers, but I have not been able to trace any manual info on the internet.
My immediate problem is that the antenna is missing - there is a BNC socket on the rear panel labelled "Antenna Type RFA" but I cannot decide if this was a simple antenna (ferrite rod perhaps) or a receiver module for DCF77 outputting the recovered audio or whatever.
Does anybody recognise the instrument/company or have any info?
Thanks in advance.

Did your searches find this website?
https://dabbledoo.weebly.com/source-comparison.html
Scroll down to the bottom for a working example of your off air standard. It appears to be designed for the DCF77 transmission from Germany which should be OK in the UK. There is a contact form on the website so why not see if the site owner can help you?

Hello Peter,

Well hopefully this isn't 13 years too late.....

I'm an electronic engineer (ex Teledyne Defence & Space, Shipley). I gathered a lot of equipment they were throwing away (yes, you heard that right) before I left.

I believe one of those items is a DK-3060 antenna for which I have no use whatsoever. I do not know if it still works, but being a passive item there is a high probability it is functional.

If you still have the need, I'd be happy to drop it off next time I'm passing (I live in Shipley) or pop it in the post.

Best regards,

They don't seem to have a website but you could try ringing them to see if they will let you have schematics - http://www.salespider.com/country/dk...nstruments-aps

There's a manual here:
http://www.peel.dk/misc/DK-3060%20DCF77%20receiver.pdf

It's not in English, but it does contain a circuit diagram.
