    Yeah my bad.  I suggested it, because I use STS Orbit Plus and it is
    DOS system clock dependant.  I made that mistake a couple of years
    back trying to do pass predicts for amateur satellited to try and
    work for Field Day.  It helps to set the DST flag.  ;-)
    Sorry for the confusion.
