Another double digit week. I don’t want to sabotage the record, so I’ll just say thanks to everyone for spending part of their Thursday evenings with the group.
Welcome to K7JSG, who according to 3830 is a second timer. It takes time to put everything together so hope to see you printing in the future. Also welcome (again) to K0TG, who is well known in CW circles and now using his experience on RTTY. And welcome to anyone I missed. Remember, 1 Q or 100, please post to 3830 so we know the real activity level.
The weekend has the DRCG WW RTTY test, so there should be some good activity. The RTTYOps Weekend Sprint is also on, though it does overlap the DRCG. So take your pick.
