So, if I selected a BAND MAP DECAY UNIT of 2, decay would be lengthened to
126 minutes?

What about something a bit more variable and maybe clearer:


Set the normal decay IN CODE to 10 minutes.

Then the BAND MAP DECAY UNIT would be a multiple of ten.

Set the information presented in the CTRL-J to say something like:

BAND MAP DECAY TIME = 10, 20, 30, 40....630 (or whatever the limit might be)

Selecting 10 would actually be selecting a 1 in the program code; 30, a 3;
100, a 10, etc.

But, the time the operator selects would be the actual time.  No internal
math needed.
