Greetings Diddlers,

A smallish group last week, but N3QE still managed a 40+ Q half hour.  Welcome to Ron, KF7ZN  who I did not work but apparently made a few Qs.  Welcome, and hope to see you printing again.  Just a quick reminder to everyone who jumps in:  1 Q or 100, please post your score to 3830scores.com so we know who was around.  We always like to publicize our new stations and hope we can keep you coming back for more.

The only keyboard mode contest I see for the weekend is the Russian WW Multi Mode Contest, which does have a RTTY mode.  Of course there is the RTTYOps Weekend Sprint on Saturday, so a couple ways to exercise the diddles.  Of course if you are a real Sprint fanatic, don’t forget the SSB Sprint on Saturday.  Yes, it takes a microphone, but hey!  It’s a Sprint!

So if you are stuck at home on Thursday evening, warm up the diddle machine and give us a try.  We’re the most friendly contest on the continent!
