Another thing you can do is get a clock that has a 24 hour time scale. You
can set it to GMT. It will help make sense of it.

MFJ sells them (mfjenterprises.com), as well as other stuff for the amateur
radio world. You can get a 12" diameter 24 analog clock for $25 (MFJ-105D).

I have seen these 24 hour analog clocks that had some cities listed on a
dial that rotated with the time but they appear to have gone away.

Another trick is to have 2 clocks side-by-side, one in each zone. Perhaps
the best would be to have two 24 hour clocks side-by-side. AM & PM would
all make sense then.

There are digital 24 hour clocks, but they only make sense when you are
doing something that requires keeping records in 24 hr time, and it is 3 AN
in the morning.

How do I express a certain time in GMT terms, as opposed to Eastern time?

And then there's the international date line to consider as well!  If they
are in Asia, then they are a day "ahead" of us, correct?
