Dean,
I ran your data through a sidereal time calculator and came up with:

The longitude is set to -0.334deg, [W 0deg -20' -2"]

Enter the UTC time and date as MMDDYY HHMM. (UTC = EST+5, EDT+4):
090919 1653

Julian Date: JD2458736.203472222

Greenwhich Mean Sidereal Time: 16:6:48

Local Sidereal Time 16:5:28

Hi, just uploaded 1.03a version clock software, on a 4 line clock.

Line 1 I'm displaying UTC which seems fine.  16:53
Line 2 I'm displaying local time. Here at this time of year is +1 hour. Local offset is +060!  17:53
Ok all fine to this point.
Line 3 I'm displaying local sidereal time 16:06 ?? I'm west of GMT! Time should be minus a little -0.2 west of Greenwich.
Line 4 I'm displaying GMT sidereal time 16:08?? Now very confused.....
#UH and #TH don't appear to help if you use local offset function??
Anybody wanna have a stab at this one hi!
