That's an interesting suggestion. Just set the CAT-250 clock to the PC's date and time upon an upload. I'll add that to my "to do" list for investigation and will post back here if it can be accomplished or not. Probably around the first part of 2004, just before the Orlando hamfest.
Meanwhile, do other CAT-250 owners with the ED-250W see any disadvantage to this suggestion? Any additional inputs to this suggestion, for or against? I'm looking to see how much interest there is for adding this feature, if it's possible.
It sounds like a nice addition, as long as it's use is optional/selectable. The clock in my laptop PC doesn't do well at keeping time, and I wouldn't want the wrong time being loaded into the controller.
Yes it would be a good idea but there doesn't seem to be much interest in this new feature. Most likely I'll not be adding in this feature for lack of interest and like you say, while it's a nice addition, I'll not be using it as my computer clock is non reliable. You are the second person to voice that concern about their computer's clock, the other fellow did so via PM.
That's a shame... I don't think it would take too much to add the capability, and it would be useful for those of us who use a time server PC clock correction utility i.e. www.dimension4.com ... granted once the repeater leaves the shop and goes to the mountain, you are back to DTMF control.
