GPS is UTC

Offset is used to display anything you want non UTC

Need to understand what else it affects

Am I drinking the wrong brand?

 Sync GPS and radio??  HUH?

AFAIK:
Set the GPS time zone and set the D700 time and zone/offset independantly, I 
*thought*.


BTW: I never did understand what the D700 time and offset were used for.  Is 
it only the local display of time and time tag on packets?? Then why offset?
Does some information come to the D700 over RF that must be corrected form 
UTC??   OR PERHAPS does the D700 send UTC in any packets??

I'm glat I included these time changes in my Excel sheets in the last rev. 
This is a pain in the Menu to do.  Shoulda' been only one setting change 
either DST on/off ot offset change (time follows unless changed  AFTERWORD.
