    DCF-77 from Germany at 77.5kHz (seventeeseven kilohertz!) should provide a
    good time signal at Brno and whole Central Europe.
    If  you have a receiver able to tune in this veeery long wave, it will sound
    "did" every second. The minute-signal contains  whole date and time
    information, digitally coded.
    
    My radio-controlled alarm clock, which contains a very little antenna,
    syncronized to DCF-77 even in the Olsztyn area in eastern Poland, which
    seems to be as far from the Transmitter as Brno.
