unix cron job

i have a cron job on my HPUX box, and it runs fine ( i believe ) but i want to change it to run at 3am and 7pm. i googled cron but couldn't find how to do this.
also, is there a way to confirm that it is running? i was pretty sure it was running because every now and then i would get something in the log about it trying to sync a file but the file disappeared because it was a file in the print spool that is deleted once it prints.
when i run

crontab -e

it looks like this

 0 0-23 * * *  /usr/local/bin/rsync -au /DELTAR /t4mbu
