    You're right. It was for the Allied effort to win the war against the Communist Horde.

    No, actually the only reason that makes sense to me was the German effort in WW1 to save fuel for the war effort. They were not the first, Shelagh was right, BLAME CANADA! On July 1, 1908, the residents of Port Arthur, Ontario, today's Thunder Bay, turned their clocks forward by one hour to start the world's first DST period. Then there is the endless debate, money out of our pockets financing studies. Here are some pros and cons, (the pros are scientists and the cons are politicians as if you haven't figured that out for yourselves): https://www.timeanddate.com/time/dst...ng-debate.html

    Most my clocks are radio controlled, so they take care of that themselves...

    I was wondering what that was, I thought I had diarrhea.

    "Most my clocks are radio controlled, so they take care of that themselves..."
    At my next to last QTH I had an "atomic clock" tuned to WWVB on 60KHz that worked fine until CongrASS mucked with the change dates, then it went wonky. Since the White Man's government lacks the wisdom of the Tribal Elders resewing the blanket reverted to manual.
