And then in a few Japanese governmental + # report from 1980s (from National Institute of Information and Communications + # Technology) regarding the construction of VLBI facility on the Marcus + # Island, it claimed that there are three time standards being used on the + # island at the time which include not just JST (UTC+9) or [US]CG time + # (UTC+11) but also a JMSDF time (UTC+10) (Japan Maritime Self-Defense + # Force).
