Greetings Diddlers,

As KG5U noted in his 3830 comments, “I thought it would be lighter than usual tonight…”,  which was putting it mildly.  Thanks to KG5U and AD4TJ for posting, but apparently there were a few others.  Thanks to everyone for keeping the ether active while the rest of us were stuffing our faces.  OK, maybe not everyone but me for sure.  Hopefully we’ll be back to what passes for normal this week.

This weekend appears to have no RTTY activity other than the RTTYOps Weekend Sprint.  So if you’ve missed a week and need to get a RTTY fix, please join us Thursday evening.

The details for our little get together this week:

Friday,  4 Dec 2020, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday, 3 Dec in NA)
