Don't expect a donation, but I'll vote for you.
Here in the State of Arizona, except for one Indian reservation and a Mormon
community that straddle state boundaries, we don't mess with our clocks. I like
to think that we are smart enough to know that you can't actually "save"
daylight by adjusting a clock. Of course the rest of the country believes
otherwise, and is so parochial in belief as to continuing to use for example,
"EST" when they actually mean, "EDT."
Hence, it is not uncommon to miss TV shows, podcasts, etc when they are
advertised as being presented at XX EST. For you hams, I had a go round with
ARRL for a couple of years because an organization that promotes
"communication", refused to publish Field Day schedules that included GMT (UTC).
The guy in charge gave me so much grief I took ARRL out of my estate plan and
let management know it. Then they added UTC.
