There aren't any such times :-)
If you move to 7am PST, 10am Eastern, then it's 14:00 UTC, which is still
within the working day in Germany, Helsinki and Tel-Aviv.
In Beijing, that's 11pm. Seoul, 00:00, and Syndey, 2am.

Many left-coast types that I work with prefer 7am, as they can do the meeting
while still at home, before traffic, before school-drop-off, etc.
(And aren't they all supposed to be super-health-nuts who get up at 6am to do Yoga?)

I've been on meetings that have simply alternated the AM/PM of the meeting.
     7pm California
     10pm NYC
     4am Berlin/5am Helsinki
     11am Beijing
     12:00 Seoul
     2pm Syndey
