You can have the time for increased/decreased basals changed
using the D-modem. I had my increased basal reset to 4 hours so
that I can mimic the square wave.

Yes, when programmed that way. See answer above.

The "permanent basal rates" are not permanent. See answer above.
3. Does this do a square wave or not?

Only with the caveat, heat affects insulin and it affects absorption.

Why Wed. at the latest? Are you on Disetronics Power of Choice
program? It sounds like you should be. You might be happier
with the D-tron rather than the H-tron if you want all those features.
