Chapter 2 Wachstanders' Equipment
1:00 p.m. GMT. Numbers indicating the day of the month are placed before the time of the day to form what is known as a date-time group (DTG). The DTG 171320Z means the 17th day of the current month plus the time in GMT. Dates from the 1st of the month to the 9th of the month are preceded by the numeral 0. (For example, 041327Z is the 4th day of the month.) Applying  the  preceding  facts,  you  easily  can  figure GMT from your local zone time. Assume that you are on a ship operating in the Virginia Capes area where the local zone time is 1700R. The R time zone has a number designation of +5, which indicates the R time zone is 5 hours behind GMT. Simply add 5 hours to your present time of 1700, to find that it is 2200 GMT. The reverse is true when computing GMT if you are in a time zone that lies in the eastern longitude. Assume your ship is in the Eastern Mediterranean and the time is 0900B. Zone B has a numeral designation of -2, so you simply subtract 2 hours from 0900 to find that GMT is 0700. SUMMARY In  this  chapter,  you  learned  about  shipboard watches, in-port and underway. You learned about the conditions of readiness and how to convert time. It is now up to you to put what you learned into use. 1-9
