Greetings Diddlers:

Well it looks like this upcoming weekend is RTTY free as far as sponsored activity goes. Couple of things happening that apparently require something called a microphone. I think I’ve heard of those…

So if you are thinking “how am I supposed to keep my keyboard skills sharp”, here you go: join in the fun for 30 minutes this Thursday evening and get your fix. KB1RI was sighted last week, and I believe joined us for the first time last week. Welcome, Eric!

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

Friday,  20 Jan 2017, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday 19 Jan 2017 in NA)
-- 1745 - 1815 PST
