Bank 3, switches 1-4 control the year in 16 year cycles beginning with 
1986.. However, this is for the PSTI Model 1020 WWV receiver, the 
ancestor of the Traconex unit. Traconex bought PSTI and inherited the 
WWV reciever and, so far as I know, didn't change the design. I was a 
consultant on the original design and I have two of the original PSTI 
receivers (impounded when they didn't pay my fee).
