perhaps you should just announce it as based on whatever localtime is in
TZ=Europe/Berlin (or wherever your reference TZ is), and then let people
calculate their own local time with their own tools?  Announcing a
recurring meeting as though it was UTC without it actually being
scheduled in UTC is a bit misleading.

Also, many calendaring programs (including the "Lightning" extension to
Thunderbird) have a way that you can input recurring events with their
own time zone, which then get displayed according to your local system's
TZ just fine.


PS kudos to Japan for not buying into the DST nonsense!
