No. Under the old rules, time would have changed next weekend (on the last Sunday in October).

You can always check what time InstantTrack thinks it is by looking in the upper left corner of the screen. If you then hit the Z key, InstantTrack will toggle between local time and UTC.

InstantTrack does not know the new rules for Daylight Saving Time. If you change your computer's clock for DST, or allow Windows to do so, you'll need to reconfigure InstantTrack each time. This is covered in the InstantTrack FAQ at http://www.amsat.org/amsat/intro/itfaq.html
