Alan, Yes, I know that HRD is correct based on hearing the birds at the
right time using its prediction.  Further, SatPC32 shows the wrong UTC (one
hour later) in the upper right corner.  For instance, now it's showing
15:31, but UTC is 14:31.  

Thanks.  BTW, I'm running Windows 7 with latest updates.

This is definitely the right place to ask.

Have you verified which program is correct, by pass reception?  If not, take
a look here:


I have DST enabled on my computer, and UTC offset set to auto in SatPC32 and
it handles the time changes correctly.
