About on-time and off-time:

QSOs in Cabrillo are logged with a granularity of one minute. The use of one second granularity would lead to the question "during which exact second did the QSO take place?" or the even stranger idea that QSOs take place instantaneously.

The ARRL has taken the very sensible interpretation that on-time and off-time also should be considered with a granularity of one minute. In other words, during any given minute you can either be on or off. Therefore 1801Z-1830Z would be a 30 minute off-time, with 1800Z being your last minute on before the break and 1831Z being the minute you resume operation.

If you make a QSO at 1800Z, take a break, and resume operating at 1830Z, then you have completed a 29 minute off-time.

DEBUG: n
