Greetings Diddlers:

Lots of activity last week, and if we include the non-posters who were active we had a good double digit group.  AA2MA is just getting his feet wet and getting the hang of things.  Everyone looks to be having a great time.  If you are looking for 30 minutes of some rip roaring sprint fun, please join us!

Looks like all the oxygen or ether will be consumed this weekend by the CQWW SSB.  The RTTYOPS weekend Sprint will still be there, but that’s about it.  So if you are bummed due to no RTTY this weekend, please join us Thursday and keep your diddles in tune.

The details for our little get together this week:

Friday,  23 Oct 2020, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday, 22 Oct in NA)
-- 1845 - 1915 PDT
-- 2145 - 2215 EDT
-- (others in-between those two)
-- 160: Around 1805  (Last two to five minutes seem to be popular…)
-- 80/40/20/15 +84 kHz up from the band edge   <--NOTE
-- Same band dupes ok after 1 intervening Q.
-- 1 kHz QSY rule, otherwise standard Sprint rules
-- Mults per band.
