I hope everyone had a great New Year celebration. Even if, according to
Dilbert, it’s just a “random point on the space-time continuum” it does feel
like a new starting point.
Last week’s group set a recent record for turnout with 16 stations reporting.
Maybe some of you realized that RTTY RU is less than one week away! Welcome to
new stations AE0EE and KE0YI, as well as previous stations (but not lately)
AB0S and WQ5L. And flying under the radar with his new call K6JO was LEE CA.
Don’t worry Lee, we knew who you were!
So if you are planning on jumping into the RTTY RU this weekend but can’t
remember how or even if your diddle machine is working, please join us Thursday
evening and give it a good test. There may be some additional testing time
(most likely Friday night) so get a head start on the group and have everything
ready and waiting.
