Adding UTC time to Menu Bar

Thu Nov 07, 2019 1:54 pm

How do you add UTC time to the Menu Bar?
Right Click on the Digital Clock open the setting box that will allow changing the information displayed. I would like to display not only the local time but UTC time. (not the offset but the actual UTC time.) How can this be done?

This may help, http://strftime.org/ I changed mine to %a %-I:%M %p, to Day of the week, and 12H time with AM PM at the end.
Best guess is I'd enter %a %-I:%M %p %z+0400 %H:%M.
Assuming the %z doesn't mess with the first time entries.

What I posted above doesn't work, %z just displays the UTC offset -0400 for me. It doesn't do what I thought it did.

alphanumeric!
Thanks for the input. It would be nice if math could be done.
