I actually entered the times as UTC but it appears users will have
to subscribe to the calendar to see the correct time format.

When you go to the calendar you're notice in the bottom right corner
a link "Subscribe with Google Calendar". Once you has logged in, add
the calendar, then click on Settings. Under General you can change the
Time Format from 1:00PM to 13:00, this should allow you to see the
times in UTC.

Google Calendar also allows you to add individual contest to "your
calendar". Click to contest you want to operate and then click the
button "Add to my calendar". You can have own our private calendar
that contains the wife's birthday, anniversaries, and other dates
you don't want to forget!!

I've very much a new user to Google Calendar and haven't printed
one but maybe someone else has and can offer their opinion.

Thanks for the suggestions,

I  started working on one this morning at Google, still very much beta but
think most of my mistakes have been corrected. Check it out and let me
happy  contesting!



Nice Kyle,

Suggestion:  Show the times in a 24-hour zulu time (UTC) format if you  can,
however, Google may not allow for that.  I see that the Google  Calendar is
beta version, so you might ask them to provide for the 0000z time  format.
They might be interested in doing this since it would make their
more internationally acceptable.

How does the Google Calendar print out?  I don't have a printer hooked  up
the computer I am on now, so I can't see how it prints.  The idea  would be
to be able to print it out and hang it on the wall, or lay it on the
table so it can be discussed witht the xyl.  Also, be able to  highlight the
contests that you plan to operate.  Also, be able to add  other personal
for trips, vacations, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. to  it.

Just some thoughts.
