The solution appears to be common for all recent Emerson SmartSet(tm) radios (BTW it's not the clock fault, it's the law).
Remarkably Emerson foresaw this, so here we go.
Short version (may require three hands :-) )
Press and hold MONTH/DATE and ALARM 1 buttons for at least 3 seconds until the display changes to something like "4 F" (Fourth month, First week) alternating with something like "4. 1" (April 1st, for 2007) or "4. 6" (April 6th, for 2008). While holding down the MONTH/DATE and ALARM 1 buttons, now press the DOWN or "-" Set button (3 times) until "3F2" shows (Third month, second week) alternating with something like "3.11) (March 11th, for 2007) or "3. 9" (March 9th, for 2008). Let go of all buttons and we are now half done.
Press and hold MONTH/DATE and ALARM 2 buttons for at least 3 seconds until the display changes to something like "10 L" (Tenth month, Last week) alternating with something like "10.28" (October 28th, for 2007) or "10.26" (October 26th, for 2008). While holding down the MONTH/DATE and ALARM 2 buttons, now press the UP or "+" Set button (1 time) until "11 F" shows (Eleventh month, first week) alternating with something like "11. 4" (November 4th, for 2007) or "11. 2" (November 2nd, for 2008). Let go of all buttons and we are now done.
This should remain until either the lithium battery fails or Congress undoes its work.
BTW the Emerson addendum has a history error. The time change in the first Sunday in April and the last Sunday in October did not start in 1966, but in 1987. Before that starting in 1966 the standard was set at the last Sunday in April and the last Sunday in October. Except for 1974, when it was January 6th, 1974 (DST start) and October 27th, 1974 (DST end) and in 1975 when it was February 23rd, 1975 (DST start) and October 26th, 1975 (DST end). Before 1966, state and local governments had many different rules. Source: http://webexhibits.org/daylightsaving/e.html

I have the same model, and I haven't found any sites that give a permanent solution. I did find a workaround for this model, which seems to fall in the "Group One" category on the following site. It is at least more of a one-touch solution (4x/yr) than manually moving the time forward/backward 4x/yr.

If your clock changed to DST late then it's hardwired for the old changeover schedule - and there's no way to reprogram it. All you can do is reset the time manually or change your time zone setting to "fool" the clock into displaying the correct time. Either way, you're going to need to reset the clock as many as four times a year to keep the correct time. The ultimate solution is to replace the clock with one that's set up for the new DST schedule.
