Greetings Diddlers:

Excellent group last week.  All our usual folks plus a few new and somewhat new returning for some fun.  WD6T (using the N6RO superstation) broke the N3QE/K7SV race last week by besting everyone.  And we had the super rare KP4 mult show up with KP4/K6DTT dropping by.  Alan is an old high school friend of mine, and he was checking out some new equipment at the RHR station.  All appears well and great to have you Alan.  There were a few others who failed to post to 3830, but we know who you are.  Welcome and thanks for keeping the ether warm with us.

The upcoming weekend has the always busy JARTS RTTY test.  There is also Worked All Germany if you want to take a cw or phone break, and also the Stew Perry TBDC on 160.  So plenty to keep everyone busy if you are still hiding indoors.
