Greetings Diddlers,

A smaller group last week (sorry I was missing as well), but still good Q totals.  Welcome to W3MAM, who has visited at least once before and is dipping his toe in the NS water again.  Welcome.

This weekend doesn’t appear to have any major contests, so you’ll have to pick.  The DigiFest is a combination of some of the more unusual digital modes, but does include 75 baud RTTY.  If you’ve never tried it, give it a go.  It will really keep you on your toes.  The Kentucky QSO Party has a Digital mode, so maybe some activity there.  I haven’t been active on Saturday mornings, so I’m not sure what’s happening with the RTTYOps Weekend Sprint.  With all those choices, it probably won’t be wall to wall stations but you might get some RTTY time anyway.

So polish up the diddle machine and join us Thursday evening to make sure all is well.

Here are the details for our little weekly get together:
