This works:

* TODO Meeting
  DEADLINE: <%%(diary-float t 5 4) 21:30>--<%%(diary-float t 2 1) 22:00 +1m -3d>

You'll need to set up appt for your 15 minute reminder.  I get mine 12
minutes before as set up by appt-message-warning-time.  appt only beeps
the terminal bell but there are other reminder setups available -- but I
haven't tried any of them.  Appt works for me.

HTH,

Bernt
