Looks like the upcoming weekend is pretty much a non-digital weekend with the Phone Sweepstakes getting the most attention. So might as well drag out that microphone from its dusty lair and give those vocal chords (or at least the DVK) a chance to shine.
But in the meantime, please join us Thursday evening to ensure your diddling machine stays in tune. We had a pretty good group last week that even got the time right. Conditions were not quite as good as previous weeks, especially on 160. Solar minimums are definitely not fun.
Here are the details for our usual Thursday evening get together.
Friday, 16 Nov 2018, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday 15 Nov 2018 in NA)
-- 1745 - 1815 PST
-- 2045 - 2115 EST
-- (others in-between those two)
-- 160: 1805 and up (Last two minutes seem to be popular…)
-- 80/40/20/15 +80kHz up from the band edge
-- Same band dupes ok after 1 intervening Q.
-- 1 kHz QSY rule, otherwise standard Sprint rules
