So,

Yesterday evening I finally added optional station times to the display. Will make a kit soon...

In this case excellent date/time routines from Microsoft which support time zones.

It appears that something is not set / working correctly as the station time for Melbourne, Australia and Rangitaiki, New Zealand appear to be off and unadjusted for their DST.

My Windows time settings and a screenshot taken with the info from timeanddate.com below.

Mike,

Attach screenshots here, not via Dropbox. That's why we have these forums, keep it all in one place.

Melbourne and Auckland should be OK if you select the correct zone.

Why not attach the station window so it can be read? Alt+Print Screen or use Paint.

Just for grins, one of the stations I have set is Woofferton. When I add the station time as UTC - Coordinated Universal Time SWM shows the station time as GMT - 5. Is station time based off of PC Time?
