"Hopf serial" would be more more fitting for NTP, but these clocks can 
about a dozen different strings. Since the hopf documentation refers to
the string as  "Standard 6021 (hopf6021, time and date)" I would argue 
"6021" should be kept in the description.

All Hopf GPS and DCF77 clocks with a serial interface will emit that 
"All hopf units with a serial interface can provide the serial data 
string for NTP."
