Greetings Diddlers:

Nothing like the week before a big RTTY event to liven up Thursday night! Old timer W1UJ was back again, and newcomers K3PP, AA5B, and AC0E made their first appearances. Welcome all, and we hope you’ll be back to add to the mult totals again. 160 was also pretty good from the west coast. Nothing to prepare for in the RTTY realm this week, but NAQP RTTY and the Real RTTY Sprint will be here before you know it. Keep those diddles in tune and keyboards limbered up.

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