I think local time must be the correct quotation basis for it to work logically, but alas, again, the instructions are sub standard.<br /> Anonymoushttps://www.blogger.com/profile/13105737416271033023noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4704844014075005218.post-78497023609785672712012-12-27T20:25:48.399-07:002012-12-27T20:25:48.399-07:00Wow!

Before I read this article, I had this stupid dials-within-dials device with all these numbers everywhere. They were mocking me and calling me stupid. It did come with instructions but I'm pretty sure the instructions were calling me worse names than stupid. Now that I read your blog I can see that the instructions were technically correct on how to use this but you just explained it way more clearly and in much simpler terms.<br />Thank you!Unknownhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/14511079036732600484noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4704844014075005218.post-4590098838908727102012-09-14T20:31:13.696-06:002012-09-14T20:31:13.696-06:00Thanks,this is a big helpThanks,this is a big helpAnonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4704844014075005218.post-51762466930823330962012-09-13T09:48:03.852-06:002012-09-13T09:48:03.852-06:00Josh,

So find your longitude place on earth in degrees, find how many times that number can be divided by 15, and then you end up with +/- how many degrees you are E or W of the closest time line. I'm at 8.33 degrees E of 0, and in time zone -1. That puts me 6.27 degrees to the West of the -1 time line, or 8.33 degrees to the east of Zulu time. If you live at 155 degrees East, you live 5 degrees to the East of the -10 time zone center line.
