Daylight Savings and Amano MJR Time Clocks

Daylight Savings and Amano MJR time clocks including MJR7000 and MJR8000 - 8100

Not all states use Daylight Savings.  

Daylight saving time is not observed in all 50 states. Two states, Arizona and Hawaii, follow permanent standard time year-round. Five U.S. territories, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, also observe permanent standard time.

2023: Marco Rubio has recently introduced legislation to also exempt Florida from Daylight Savings, so this may also change.

All Amano MJR time clocks, including the 1980's Microder clocks, need to have their daylight savings preset.  If you do not do it, one, or possibly both, situations will occur:

1)  Your clock will jump forward or backward in March or November, and you will need
      to correct time times manually writing on the card.  It will happen up to 6 days before,
      or 6 days after.

2)   The clock will not jump, and it will be off by an hour. Then, when the old, unupdated
      setting comes around, the clock will change 1 hour forward, or backward, again. 
      Creating the same mess again within a week.

Either way, it's a mess, one you can easily avoid. 
      These settings are for Fall 2023, and Spring 2024.
       Unless you are exempt, see above.
