EST showing as UTC -6:00 instead of -5:00 for Indiana locations
« on: January 28, 2024, 04:04:15 PM »
Hi there, when trying to calculate charts for Indiana locations that are in Eastern time zone, regardless of year the Timezone option shows as UTC -6:00 for EST when it should be -5:00.  If I force the timezone to America/NewYork when calculating a Radix chart, it will appropriately display it as EST UTC -5:00, but when selecting America/Indiana/SouthBend for example, it shows as EST UTC -6:00. 

I suspect this might be due to some sections of Indiana being on CST, but when I select the EST locations it should show as EST UTC -5:00.  I have checked the timezone txt file in the cfg folder and it is correct, any way to fix this?

Can you check it this is for more years and places in this region?
I could change it but it might mess up other charts that are now done correctly.
