If the communications to/from them is in the CENELEC A band (or
similar), one may have to go to great lengths in order to have
60..77.5kHz clocks/receivers working.
(active on the high channel in A band)
I am only 500km from DCF77 (Denmark), and since they replaced the meter
with a 'smart' one, none of the radio clocks have been able to sync.
Only the phase tracking receiver, having a noise blanker, still works.
So I do not like 'smart' meters.
