[Shanks] has it.... + # + # My translation: + # + # "The Chilean Army has announced that summer time will begin tomorrow, + # Saturday, October 14 in continental Chile, insular Chile, and + # Antarctica, as provided by Supreme Decree 25 of January 11, 1966. + # By the preceding, official time in continental Chile and Chilean + # Antarctic, and official time in Western Insular Chile, which applies + # to Easter Island and Sala y Gomez Island, will be set forward at + # midnight and at 22:00, respectively, by 20 minutes." +  + # From Paul Eggert (2001-05-04): + # Go with this article in preference to Shanks's 1969 date for modern DST. + # Assume this rule has been used since DST was introduced in the islands. +  + # From Paul Eggert (2002-10-24): + # <http://www.shoa.cl/shoa/faqhoraoficial.htm> gives many details that + # disagree with the following table, but we haven't had time to compare them. +    # Rule NAME FROM TO TYPE IN ON AT SAVE LETTER/S   Rule Chile 1918 only - Sep 1 0:00 1:00 S   Rule Chile 1919 only - Jul 2 0:00 0 -   Rule Chile 1927 1931 - Sep 1 0:00 1:00 S   Rule Chile 1928 1932 - Apr 1 0:00 0 - - Rule Chile 1969 1997 - Oct Sun>=9 0:00 1:00 S - Rule Chile 1970 1998 - Mar Sun>=9 0:00 0 - - Rule Chile 1998 only - Sep 27 0:00 1:00 S - Rule Chile 1999 only - Apr 4 0:00 0 - - Rule Chile 1999 max - Oct Sun>=9 0:00 1:00 S - Rule Chile 2000 max - Mar Sun>=9 0:00 0 - + Rule Chile 1966 1997 - Oct Sun>=9 4:00u 1:00 S + Rule Chile 1967 1998 - Mar Sun>=9 3:00u 0 - + Rule Chile 1998 only - Sep 27 4:00u 1:00 S + Rule Chile 1999 only - Apr 4 3:00u 0 - + Rule Chile 1999 max - Oct Sun>=9 4:00u 1:00 S + Rule Chile 2000 max - Mar Sun>=9 3:00u 0 -   # IATA SSIM anomalies: (1990-09) says 1990-09-16; (1992-02) says 1992-03-14;   # (1996-09) says 1998-03-08.

Any list would be out of date as soon as + # it was produced. This year daylight saving ended on April 18/19th + # and started again on September 12/13th.
