Greetings Diddlers:

Another double digit turnout.  Great scores (sorry I missed it!).

Another reminder about the two new sprint style sessions during week, sponsored by the RTTYOps group.  Tuesday and Thursday morning (in NA), 1700Z – 1900Z.  Just a few folks right now, but drop by and get a bit more keyboard fun.

And, if you haven’t heard, Contest University (normally done at Dayton) will be online all day tomorrow.  Check out https://www.contestuniversity.com/course-outline/   for a list of topics.  RTTY aficionado W0YK will be presenting on digital contesting.

Unless I missed something on the calendar, looks like nothing on RTTY this weekend except the RTTYOps Weekend Sprint.  Same group sponsoring the weekday Sprints, although this one has a twist that the exchange includes the grid square.  Drop by and get a little additional Sprint goodness!

The details for our little get together this week:
