Hi Scot and all WL'ers.  I am not sure the Time Zone autoset is the result 
of Wayne's work or inherent in Win98.  With the advent of 98, the computer 
know your time zone and can relate all back to Zulu.  Not sure how the 
coding works as I am not a programmer but I think all Windows programs do 
the same.  E.g., DX4WIN does the shift also.
