Greetings Diddlers,

OK, back to double digits.  Welcome to WA5LXS who is giving this RTTY Sprint stuff a test drive.  Welcome back to quite a few regulars.  Christmas Eve may be another slow evening but for now we’re plodding ahead!

This weekend has the TRC Digi contest, which looks to be RTTY.  Don’t know a thing about this 12 hour test from our friends in LZ land.  The ARI group has an 80/40 test with a Digital component, and of course the RTTYOps Weekend Sprint.  So just a bit of keyboard activity.  The ARRL Ten Meter test is also up, and maybe we’ve got enough solar activity to make 10 meters live again!

So stop by on Thursday evening and give the diddle machine a test drive and be ready for anything.

The details for our little get together this week:
