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 Time.

Best wishes,
