Could we alternate the times (and day too if ppl want) of the calls? We could have a call on Monday 16:00 UTC on odd weeks, and a call at a different time/day on even weeks. Personally I care more for the time of the day than the day of the week.

I am of course fine with any hour.

It does indeed seem like we have had less people on the conf call since the hour change even though we have been very busy recently. 

It might have been that our having  more meetings (every week instead of biweekly) has had an effect as well as the holiday season,...
