Well then, since I rig the wings in the hangar area and then tow the
glider to the apron for final prep before take off, I'll turn on the CN
devices at that time.* Some times it's an hour or more before I take
off.* That should give the hardware plenty of time to figure out what
time it is.

Griping hat on...* We're not planning a nuclear strike here, just
getting bragging rights about a meaningless fun flight.* It's ridiculous
that OLC acts like the bully on the play ground, enforcing unnecessary
rules.* Griping hat off...
