I guess I don't understand why WSJT-X can't have a manual time offset internally. I don't own the laptop that I'm using in the shack. The "owner" of the laptop has the time setting locked out, and I'm not allowed to install any of the time management apps. As with most laptops the time stability is awful and is often more than a min off every 12hrs powered down. I really don't want to shell out a several hundred bucks for a new laptop for the simple problem of a slow clock when I have a laptop that works in every other respect. It would be so much easier if I could just tell the WSJT-X to offset by x sec. But I do realize that I am very likely the only person with this particular problem.
