Greetings Diddlers,

Last week was a smallish (let’s call it ‘more personal’) group, but 40 meters still sounded pretty busy.  We had several irregulars (copyright N3QE, I like it) N9TR, W1UE, and NG1M.  No doubt tuning up for the NAQP last weekend, but we’ll take it.  Don’t be bashful guys, c’mon back more often!

As a summer operating tip, don’t forget 15 meters. It was open at the start but few takers.  Should be good for a few mults anyway.  Might make up for the missing 80 and 160 Qs.

The upcoming weekend looks pretty quiet all around.  So please join us Thursday evening and get some time in full Sprint mode to keep the ether filled with diddles.

The details for our little get together:

Friday,  23 July 2021, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday, 22 July 2021 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
