Greetings Diddlers:

I’m sure NS is not on your short list this week, but if you’re just hanging around the shack on Thursday evening, shake off the tryptophan effects and fire up the radio(s)! Probably only a small (but dedicated) group this week, so if you’ve ever wanted a chance to jump in and give it a try, this is it!

Last week was a low band event (what happened to 20?) but N3QE was printable on the West coast on 160. So things are looking up for the low band crowd.

Here’s the usual list of times, rules and extra notes for our usual Thursday soiree.

Friday, 25 Nov 2016, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday 24 Nov 2016 in NA)
-- 1745 - 1815 PST  (NOTE!)
-- 2045 - 2115 EST
-- (others in-between those two)
-- 160: 1805 and up (Last two minutes seem to be popular…)
-- 80/40/20/15 +80kHz up from the band edge
-- Same band dupes ok after 1 intervening Q.
-- 1 kHz QSY rule, otherwise standard Sprint rules
-- Mults per band.
-- 100W power limit

Diddle diddle,

Ken K6MR
