Our PropNet 30m Weekend Oct 6/7 coming soon...please partcipate!
Sorry to trouble you, but I have a set up query with the PropNetPSK
All is running OK in "Lurker" mode,
but I keep getting an error message saying:
'10/15/2007 00:00:01' is not a valid date and time.
I have checked my set up and I am running in 24 hour format, with the
correct time and date on my system.
However, on this side of the pond we use 1/10/2007 and I believe your
side uses 10/1/2007?. If I leave my computer in the correct UK
cannot change to that format.
I am keen to set this up correctly and be a useful "Lurker"
Any Ideas please?.
I note that some of my 20m information, was displayed as live input
1500z today, from my locator of IO90BR.
Mainly showing good 20m propagation across Europe, from the UK to
Thank you for your time.

The datetime format must be as MM/DD/YYYY HH:mm:ss. Sicne the sation
in the UK, he will have to change his regional setting to set that up.
Open the Regional and language settings. Start | Control Panel |
regional and language settings.
Under the regional Options Tab, you Probably have English (United
Click the Customize button
Click the Time Tab and select HH:mm:ss for the time format.
Click the Date Tab and in the dropdown box for the short data format,
Make sure the date separator is a / character.
I know this is not the normal format for date and time in Europe nor
other place in the world. When I first wrote this software I did not
take into consideration that there are 5 bazillion methods for
presenting date and time. Until I can re-write the software to
international and localized date/time formats, this is your only
to get it to work correctly.
