Summary0001698: Logbook Time Zone Issue - problem with entering past logs: local to UTC conversion with DST
DescriptionRefer to Mantis Report 0001618.

Per customer:
"This has been only PARTIALLY fixed in the latest update (8/10).

It is no longer mangling the times, but the calculation between local and UTC is still incorrect in some instances.

As I previously reported, the logbook is using the CURRENT date to determine whether or not DST is in effect or not. It should be using the date of the log entry. I just tried entering a log entry for this past January (DST is not in effect in January), but the UTC time it calculated was only +4 hours, when it should have been +5 hours.

This will be much more of a problem when the actual date is near the crossover to/from DST. If someone is entering logs after the fact (i.e. taking paper logs from a prior weekend outing and entering them into HRD Logbook), and the DST start/end happened between the QSO and when they're being entered into HRD Logbook, if they're entered as local time, their UTC times will be wrong."
Steps To Reproduce- Ensure that current system time is in "DST"
- Launch Logbook
- In Tools->Configure->Appearance, set the Times -> Format option to "Local"
- Refresh the display
- Open ALE window and enter a callsign, then change the date to a period when DST is not in effect
- Save the log entry
- Observe the local time shown
- Observe the time difference between the time entered and the time displayed is one hour off from the correct UTC conversion

This is very old and I think it's invalid. If we receive another trouble ticket on this, we'll open this back up.
