    I don't believe you are off course at all. ZT is your geographical position 
    time. Zulu time when I was growing up was mainly a military term and when I 
    was flying we used Zulu time in position reports. (We would cross many Zones 
    a flight so we would use GMT but call it Z). I believe it was named Zulu 
    before the current name change (UTC). One letter instead of three.

      Subject: ZT
      As the rankest of amateurs I have a simple question, the answer to which has puzzled me.
      ZT, in my reading, seems sometimes to refer to Zone Time, which I interpret 
    to mean the local zone time of my geographical position.  But elsewhere ZT 
    seems to mean Zulu Time, which appears to mean time at Greenwich or UTC.
      I would much appreciate someone explaining where I've gotten "off course" on this subject.
