Greetings Diddlers:

Another double digit turnout last week, although a couple stations  did not 
report to 3830.  40m was as active as ever, and I finally made the 160m 
connection to NN7SS.  Must mean winter is near…

This last weekend was definitely a full one.  Worked many NSers in the JARTS, 
and even Europe opened up for us here on the west coast.  Hope everyone had the 
time to keep active on the bands.

This weekend is one of those that either you like what’s on the menu or you 
find your golf clubs/bicycle/skis (water, not snow) or perhaps do some SWLing.  
CQWW SSB is the only thing on the plate, so if you’d like some RTTY time before 
digging out your microphone please join us Thursday evening for a bit of 

And now the warning:  Warning, Danger, Will Robinson!  Daylight Savings Time is 
going away in less than two weeks.  So write the yellow sticky, put an alarm in 
your calendar, whatever you need to do.  NS sessions will be starting 1 hour 
earlier in local time (this includes you CW guys too!).  Showing up an hour 
late will have you RTTY folks finding no diddles but lots of CW.  Forewarned is 

And don’t forget we have a spot on the real time score server at 
contestonlinescore.com.  Instructions for setup are on the site and all major 
loggers support the reporting format.
