I use `ntpq -pn` to see what the status is.

`cat /dev/gps0` shows the NEMA stream.

We have clocklist:

ntpq> clocklist
associd=0 status=0012 1 event, clk_bad_format,
poll=14, noreply=0, badformat=1, baddata=0, fudgetime1=0.0,
fudgetime2=260.0, stratum=0, refid=GPS, flags=5, device="NMEA GPS Clock"

Then the 'badformat' is worrying.
What is wrong and how can I fix this?

Also: when the GPS gives bad data, then why doesn't it use a different
clock as peer?
