Greetings Diddlers,

I guess we’ll blame SS preparation for the smallish group last week. Yeah, that’s it.  Well just maybe the time change might have caught some people off guard.  It sure did me.  Welcome to KF7ZN, who helped bring 160 alive here on the west coast.  20 has been dead for a while so it’s nice to get another band.

One of the great RTTY tests is this weekend:  WAE RTTY.  Not only can you work everyone, you get to send QTCs both ways if you like.  So check it out and dive right in

And so you can check out your RTTY setup, join us this week and make sure everything is in tip top shape.

The details for our little get together this week:

Friday,  13 Nov 2020, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday, 12 Nov in NA)
