Greetings Diddlers:

I trust that the ringing in your ears is pretty much gone by now.  Remember that the Real RTTY Sprint is just over 3 weeks away, so let’s keep exercising those diddles so you are ready.

Another double digit group last week. We had 6 NCCC members turn out for this one, which I think might be a record (at least recently). Welcome to Stefan, AF6SA and Hank W6SX who drop by occasionally to check out their stations. Bill, N0KQ, must be traveling and gave us the elusive CO mult.  Welcome all and hope to get you back once in a while!

 Still pretty much only 3 bands, though 40 and 80 were where the action was.  160 not so much.   I sure hope 20 comes back soon!

The upcoming weekend is pretty much CW all of the time, but if you have a few minutes Thursday evening, please join us and keep your Sprint skills sharp.

Here are the details for our usual Thursday evening session:
Friday,  16 Feb 2018, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday, 15 Feb 2018 in NA)
