Is it a common practice to use civilian time vs. military time for dispatch? I've heard 10 o'clock instead of 22 hundred hours on Dispatch. 40 years and happily retired.

CSP normally uses the 24-hour clock for time stamps, so the 12-hour clock is pretty abnormal. Dispatchers typically read whatever is displayed on their screen, so it is likely that the clock in the software that they use or the computer itself got changed to the 12-hour format for some reason. It sounds like it is isolated to a single dispatcher on the lesser used dispatch console, which used to be the dedicated 3B position until Pueblo inherited them as a random fact.

I've heard ten o'clock rather than 10 hundred. And, 8, 9, etc. But after noon 13 hundred, 14 hundred, etc.
