Well, what do you know! I've had my Paragon for years and never knew that. I
normally keep the display on the alpha labels for memory channels (or my
call on VFO) and only look at the clock periodically. I had seen it seemed
to be off an hour + or - from time to time and would reset it without
connecting what was going on. Brain freeze, I guess! Anyway, thanks for the
tip. I see it has already done the Fall-back thing, so I will leave it alone
for a week more...

Heads up for Ten-Tec Paragon owner / users: The Paragon's clock is based on
old Motorola clock chip with a daylight savings time change program. The
will spring ahead and fall back.... unfortunately the chip was manufactured 
before the last TWO Congressional mandates so the time changes are much
in the Spring and much earlier in the Fall.

When I had my Paragon, I noticed the "GMT" reading changed from what it
be. Ten-Tec had no documentation on the clock's daylight saving time
Motorola verified its capability.

Paragon owners should not expect a time change next week end. Its already 
happened and is the reason IF the clock is now one hour slow!

73 & DX,
