Zulu Time

In some events I have been able to read the time and understand it, but I don’t understand one thing- what are the two numbers before a Zulu time? For example- 111800ZNOV17 I understand that it is 1800Z but what are the two 1s in the beginning?

that signifies the date of the event

Which date? Like the day?

yea so like in this case the event is on november 11

The two 1s before 1800

Oh okay. Thank you! 😂

Wait, I have one more question

Are they talking about the Zulu time in the country that the event is taking place, or my local Zulu time?

Try doin a lil readin. Gets you far in this neck of the ole woods
