Dear Jean-Louis and all the others, thanks for all the input.
In fact I have considered other time stations, but the precision of the
DCF77 (if I'm not mistaken is plus/minus 2*10^-12) and the HBG (the same
precision) made them very good candidates. The active antenna is probably a
good investiment (Conrad or custom made), since the unit itself is located
inside a building with many equipments generating alot of electrical noise.
I will also try tomorrow a loop antenna. Just for the sake of it, I have an
old radio at home that have an antenna like that and I will see if that
