Greetings Diddlers:

The upcoming weekend has one of the major RTTY tests on tap: WAE DX RTTY.  WAE is always interesting, especially with the unique QTC exchanges.  And, for RTTY we can all work each other as well as a bit more leeway in who gets to exchange QTCs and in which direction.  So brush up on the rules and join in on the weekend.

If you need a diddling tune up, please join us this Thursday evening (NA) and ensure you are ready to go.  Here’s the usual list of times, rules and extra notes for our usual Thursday soiree.

And don’t forget that things begin 1 hour earlier in local time.  If your CQs go unanswered, check UTC and see if maybe you are about an hour late!

Friday, 9 Nov 2018, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday 8 Nov 2018 in NA)
-- 1745 - 1815 PST
-- 2045 - 2115 EST
