Greetings Diddlers:

I hope everyone had a great New Year celebration.  Also I trust those of 
you in the deep freeze found a comfy spot!  Last week had quite the 
turnout given the end of the year.  New stations W2TT along with NCCCers 
W1RH and W9KKN were in there with a plethora of our regular stations.  
This was the first RTTY Sprint ever for W1RH, and W9KKN must have been 
back home /9 even though he's now an NCCC member.  Welcome guys and hope 
we'll see you again!

This weekend is the first serious RTTY test of the year: ARRL RTTY 
Roundup.  So let's make sure your diddle machines are ready to go.  
Please join us Thursday evening and give everything a checkout.  Yes the 
format is a little different but jump in and we'll make sure you are 
ready for a successful weekend.
