Greetings Diddlers,

Excellent group last week, with some folks that have been missing of late back at the keyboard.  Welcome back to K4IU, AI6O, K7TQ, and our QRP stalwart NN7SS.  Great to have everyone warming the ether.

Hope everyone was able to spend some time with the WAE.  Always good to have a serious RTTY test.

The upcoming weekend has one of the weird contests where you have to use something called a “microphone”.  I know I’ve seen one here somewhere, but I’ve got time to look for it  :^)   The RTTYOps Weekend Sprint is still there, but I would imagine that Sweepstakes SSB is going to be the event of the weekend.

So even though it probably won’t help your SS score, please join us Thursday evening and keep the diddles flowing forth from your RF generator.

The details for our little get together this week:

Friday,  20 Nov 2020, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday, 19 Nov in NA)
-- 1745 - 1815 PST
-- 2045 - 2115 EST
