Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) = Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)

US CST is GMT - 6 hours therefore 2200 GMT = 1600 CST

i believe that CST(central standard time) is actually -6 hours. But currently chicago is in CDT(central daylight time) which is -5.

CLI-fu to the rescue:

date -u
If your clock is set correctly, that'll give you the current UTC/GMT.
