Telecom digest has been running since 1981. 

I don't know if any of the Amateur Press Associations (APAs)
made the leap to digital, but an APA is fundamentally a digest 
email list done with a copier/mimeograph/hectograph and the postal
service as the transport layer, and there's at least one active 
one that's 80 years old.

This is the list that collects and distributes the data that keeps clocks worldwide showing the correct local time, at least when politicians give more than a few days' notice of a change.
