Greetings Diddlers:

I trust everyone had a great weekend in the Roundup.  Don't worry, the 
bells in your head will go away soon enough.  The group last week had 
all the usual suspects, with Ed, P49X/W0YK dropping by for that elusive 
mult we only see a few times a year.  W6SX was in there again testing 
the station on HP.   We'll take the activity where we can find it.

This weekend looks to be cw-centric, with the NAQP CW test as the first 
big cw test of the year.  But hey, now that you've got your rtty setup 
running well, why not drop by on Thursday evening and keep everything in 

Here are the details for our usual Thursday evening session:

Friday,  12 Jan 2018, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday, 11 Jan 2018 in NA)
