Greetings Diddlers:

Just a little thin on the turnout last week, but some new and returning stations.  VE2FXL was our first timer of the week.  Welcome Luc and glad you discovered us.  W0CO and K4GM were also in there mixing it up.  Welcome to all new, returning, and of course all our regulars.  We couldn’t do it without you!

The upcoming weekend has the NAQP RTTY test, so here’s an excuse to get your diddle machine tuned up and ready to go.

Here are the details for our usual Thursday evening (in NA)  get together:
