[amsat-bb] 5K0T logged sat times

I have checked the 5K0T clublog and see that I have 2 QSOs there (wasn't sure he got my call on the first pass, was at LOS), but when I go to enter the times to make a QSL request, it says the times are not correct. So I e-mailed the QSL manager and he sent me back the log entries from Ham Radio Deluxe. He shows the times exactly two hours ahead of what I have. So I have checked my tracking programs and I show no passes at the times his logs show, rather my times show as correct. Has anyone else that made a QSO with 5K0T tried to enter their times in Clublog to see if they are correct?? If you were successful, which pass was it? My passes were 2017-11-22 2029 and 2055z.

So I e-mailed him back to tell him I think maybe there is a problem with either the computer that the log was recorded on or with the HRD program, etc., and his reply was simply, 'I use UTC times'. I made up some screen shots of my Orbitron for both his times and my times and sent them to him, but whether he will get the attachments is yet to be seen. It would just be good to know (for confidence level) if anyone else encounters the same problem. (Or am I just royally messed up and not seeing it.)

Thanks in advance, feel free to reply on or off list. 73, Kevin N4UFO
