Greetings Diddlers:

I hope everyone had a great Christmas or other holiday gathering this week.  We had a lighter than usual turnout last week, but  still lively.  N2WK dropped by to give his remote station some exercise. Welcome Wayne and hope to catch you in the future.

A reminder for newer participants who are N1MM+ users (probably most of you):  NSRTTYDUPE is the correct contest for our little get together.  There is a minor bug that does not update the score during the session, but a quick ‘rescore contest’ at the end will put everything right.

Nothing in the digital realm for the weekend, but don’t forget the SARTG New Year RTTY test on 1 Jan for 3 hours.  The exchange is a bit long but always interesting to see some of the greetings in other languages.

And of course the first big RTTY/Digital test of the year is now less than two weeks away. Please join us Thursday evening and make sure your diddle machine is in top form.

Here are the details for our usual Thursday evening get together:
