There’s nothing like an upcoming contest to bring out everyone. Quite the
group last week: 16 reported to 3830 and some others who were just tuning up
for the weekend. I hope everyone put their finely honed Sprint skills to good
use this past weekend. And if you did enjoy yourself, why not invite someone
to give the Sprint a try? The last couple hours could have used some
additional stations. But still a good time.
Don’t forget that DST is now in effect (except for you few lucky folks living
in the rational states that ignore this silliness), so if you don’t hear anyone
at the start wait one hour and we’ll all continue on as if nothing changed.
The new calls from last week were KK6NON, N2WK, AI6JB, and AA6OC. Welcome guys
and hope you’ll drop by in the future.
This weekend has the BARTG HF RTTY test, so don’t let those diddles cool down.
