Greetings Diddlers:

Hope many of you had a great time this last weekend.  It’s the one time of the year we W6s feel wanted!  Thanks to all who jumped in, including many calls I recognized from here as well as the CW NS.  Thanks for playing!
Last week’s NS had a full double digit compliment, with the very rare DC multiplier showing up in the form of Eric, W3DQ.  Eric has been known to pop in when we least expect it.  Welcome and don’t worry Eric, you sounded like a expert to me.
The upcoming weekend has the always interesting Makrothen RTTY test.  With three separate 8 hour periods and the always interesting distance scoring algorithm, you can get some great keyboard time and maybe even boost your country total.  So join us Thursday evening and warm up the diddle machine to make sure all is well.
The details for our little get together this week to keep your diddles in tune:
