I concur with option a) as well. I can deal with the math needed for “UTC only” during Standard Time and Daylight Savings time here in the United Stares.

Technically, there are two correct ways to announce times:

a) UTC only. Everybody should know in which timezone they are, do the math: 12:00 UTC - You are in UTC +1 -> 13:00

b) UTC + timeshift. Same as above, but a bit more complicated, one should do more math: 12:00 UTC-7 - I am at UTC+1 = +8 hours = 20:00.
Yes please for option A! I'm in Britain, so UTC is particularly
convenient, but I prefer it even when Britain is observing Summer

Best wishes,
