Is there a alarm clock app that uses UTC instead of local timezone?

The reason I ask is that I am tired of this daylight savings time idea, so my plan is to set 1 time in a non DST timezone like UTC and then use that time as wakeup in the morning time all year.

In Russia there is no DST anymore as of 8.02.2011. Therefore you could set your timezone to MSK and set your alarm depending on the time difference to your location.

Lucky you, no more DST :) – Johan Mar 19 '12 at 20:04
But you know that if you change the timezone the phone uses, then all the apps will be using the "wrong time". I would like things like calendar and logs to use the local time. It is only the alarm clock that should use UTC. – Johan Mar 19 '12 at 20:05
I am not in Russia, so not so lucky me :). – Sergiy Byelozyorov Mar 20 '12 at 10:46

That app does not exist, all the alarm clocks use the local timezone.

It's only left that all clocks run Android. Then you won't be able to do this at all :D – Sergiy Byelozyorov Mar 20 '12 at 10:44
