Greetings Diddlers,

Just short of double digits reporting to 3830, but I know there was at least one more who was active and didn’t post.  So double digit turnout it is.  Welcome to first timer KK8X, who even admitted it in his post.  Sid said he’ll be back, so I think we snagged another one!  Great to have the OH mult in there.   Also welcome back to WQ5L who has been missing lately, with that always alluring MS mult.

Great to work quite a few NS folks last weekend.  Always a treat to actually hear what everyone sounds like.  Sometimes I forget we actually have voices.  The upcoming weekend will be pretty much CW for 48 hours, and combined with Thursday being Turkey Day, everyone is excused unless you absolutely have nothing else to do on Thursday evening..  And you have not fallen asleep after partaking in the festivities.  There was a rumor about some limits that were being placed on the get togethers, but I just claim that I’m a really close friend of the California governor and Presto!, I can do whatever I want  :^)  (Heh Heh)

So if you are just hanging out in the shack at start time and can find the keyboard, please warm the ether so it’s ready for the weekend.
