Greetings Diddlers:

Another double digit turnout last week.  20 meters hung in there for quite a while, and even a few 15 meter Qs  The longer days are helping even with the blank sun.

If you are into gigantic point scores, this weekend has the granddaddy of them all: the Volta RTTY.  An interesting score formula makes 1M scores easy.  A little effort and you too can join the 100M club!

Please join us Thursday evening and warm up your diddle machine for a problem free weekend..

Here are the details for our usual Thursday evening session:
Friday,   11 May 2018, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday, 10 May 2018 in NA)
