Sun program help

hi, please, I need help about the program Sun.raw. I loaded it, after a reset I loaded it again, it seems ok, but when I press XEQ Sun I get "Nonexistent". Are the variables (TILT, LAT, SEAS, TOD, HIGHT) to be set firstly, but what they mean (ok per LAT, I presume latitude...)? Other advice? Thank y...

Re: Annuciators

I worked out what was setting the Flag 1 annunciator on my DM42. It was the "Convert" programme (converts between units, e.g. cm to ft etc.). (At least I know about flags now). :) I was going to ask the same thing about "1" annunciator... I'm using Convert (very good program!) and so it is the "cul...

Re: February run of DM-42

Congratulations! Enjoy your new toy! And praise postal services working reliably even without tracking number and other superfluous rubbish (BTW, Thurn & Taxis didn't need any tracking numbers either for centuries). thank you Walter! And yes, I'm praising no rubbish and fiscal postage will be deliv...

Re: February run of DM-42

Yes, this is true unfortunately, also in Milan. indeed. And another delay happens when they write in the tracking "working" (Italian: "in lavorazione"): if there is this label, *also if* the parcel is in our city on Friday morning, 70% of the time it will be delivered next Monday, I don't know why....
