After you download the software (Click here to do so), save the downloaded file
"setup_decoclock.exe" to your desk top, then run it.
When Setup runs follow the simple prompts to install the clock program on your computer.
Important: If you are using Windows™ 7 or Vista™ Click Here for special instructions before running the clock.
Once you have your computer set correctly you're ready to run DecoClock for the first time. When you do, you will see a window, similar to the one above, displaying the time in UTC.
You probably want to "play a bit" with your new toy. To do so right click anywhere on the brown "case" of the clock to reveal the menu.
AboutTells you a little about the program; what the version number is, where it's available and the guy who wrote it.
The Alarms dialog allows you to set and control two different alarm functions.
On the left is a 24 hour alarm clock that you can set to go off at the same time each day.
On the right is an interval timer that is settable from 10 seconds to 600 seconds. This feature was inspired by the requirement by the United States Federal Communications Commission that all US amateur radio stations identify themselves at least every 10 minutes.
The Internet Setup dialog box enables or disables the SNTP connection between DecoClock and the ClockVault.com time server.
For best results, you should connect to the Internet before starting DecoClock. The program attempts to sync when it is first started and at random intervals thereafter. Successful synchronization is indicated when the red "light bulb" below the main display turns green.
