Greetings Diddlers:

With only one (maybe two for a couple of guys) band even pretending to be open it was a quiet session.  But we managed to keep the ether alive.

The upcoming weekend looks to be pretty full with things to do.  The Russian WW Digital test is there if you need a digital fix.

But of course for us here in W6 land there’s only one thing to do: California QSO Party!  Sponsored by our beloved Northern California Contest Club, this is  your chance to get the somewhat rare Worked All California Counties Award in one weekend.  Yes, I know you work W6s by the boatload, but some of us live in counties that are not well represented on the bands.  And there will be quite a few Expeditions to put the really rare ones on the air.  So find your bug/keyer/straight key, perhaps a microphone and join in the fun.  No diddling for this one though.

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