That's fair enough and I totally understand.  If I'm the only one
pushing for an earlier meeting, then please ignore me.  I just figured
that a meeting scheduled for something closer to 18:00 (or even 19:00)
UTC might allow more people to participate.  Remember, the further east
we're trying to reach, the earlier we need to schedule it (otherwise
people at UTC+0400 or UTC+0500 are needing to be available at midnight
or 0100 in the morning).

For me personally, the problem is that as a teacher who has to be at
school at 07:00, early nights are vital.   But again, I will do what I
can to be there, no matter when it is, and I won't bring it up again if
most people are happy.
