Greetings Diddlers:

I hope everyone had a productive (QSO wise) weekend. Pleased to see (in case you did not catch the announcement) that the Makrothen RTTY Contest will be continued with a new sponsorship group. This weekend is another RTTY favorite: JARTS! Including a number of QSO Parties and WAG, plenty of activity for the weekend.

We had a good group last week, and 160 is starting to come alive. Welcome to first timers KF5VRD and KI8W, as well as WH6YH who was back for more!

If you need a chance to check out your RTTY setup (or you are addicted to Sprinting), please join us Thursday evening for 30 minutes of wild dial twisting.

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

Friday, 14 Oct 2016, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday 13 Oct 2016 in NA)

Diddle diddle,

Ken K6MR
