Why not observe a minute of silence right before the start
from 2359 to 0000z. Nobody would be able to hold a frequency
waiting for the start. Silence, then the band explodes
at 0000Z with frantic activity. I think that is the kind of thing Bill
would appreciate. I will honor the final consensus, however.
