Thanks Mike, Im playing with some numbers now. You are correct that the standard reduction is done in 1000ft lots. I just wasent sure that DecoP would understand the inputs and convert appropriatly.

This is what concerns me; (taken from help file)

Surface Pressure mb
This is the known ambient surface pressure, if the actual surface pressure is not known, it is recommended that this be set to 1000mb. Although this setting can be set to 0mb, the algorithms are not tested to this low ambient pressure and the program may produce unacceptable results."

Although diving in a near vacumn might be fun, Id like to know where they stop claiming accuracy as far as reduced mb.
Im fairly confident that 6500ft isint going to matter much.
