There seems to be an error in your names(DF) <- line so I just renamed the first 4 fields. Try this:

# Should be 3 lines in Lines.

Lines <- "YYYY MM DD HH    P-uk    P-kor   P-SME   EPOT    EREA     RO
    R1 R2      RGES   S-SNO     SI    SSM       SUZ    SLZ

0.013 0.223   0.235    0.01    0.38   74.72    0.96  736.51

DF <- read.table(textConnection(Lines), header = TRUE) names(DF)[1:4] <- c("year", "month", "day", "hour") library(chron)
library(zoo)
z <- zoo(as.matrix(DF), with(DF,chron(paste(month,day,year,sep="/"))+hour/24)) as.ts(z)
