Local time uses:

LOCAL YEAR
LOCAL DAY OF YEAR
LOCAL MONTH OF YEAR
LOCAL DAY OF MONTH
LOCAL DAY OF WEEK
LOCAL TIME

Again these are P: variables.

Radar Alt is probably  AIRCRAFT ALTITUDE - GROUND ALTITUDE..

Not sure what you mean for trims. The A: variables are just readings - if
you want interaction you need the K: events to trigger these.

I've got a Misc gauge working, with a collection of the bits of data I
like to see. I'd used the Trim options but it doesn't seem to react.
Also have GMT working, though I can't find Local Time.
 Another I'm still wrestling with is Radar Altitude.

Progress being mad though; at last.
