All all values entered correctly on clock. However two things are not acting correctly...Want get rid of DST as we do not use DTS in Arizona. Secondly clock still rolls over the hour apparently via atomic clock icon in the evening or early morning. We live a few hundred miles from Ft. Collins and Colo. knows Arizona is on MST year around, set up help but my problem lies somewhere ouside of the common setup. Any help you have to solve the above problems would be greatly appreciated.

Telephone is not possible as I suffer acute deafness and so phone is not possible. Any e-mail (printable) instructions to solve DTS and hour skip would be appreciated, Terry
