Greetings Diddlers,

The 3830 list was just short of double digits, but I did notice several active stations did not post.  So we’ll call it a good session anyway.  N3QE knocked it out of the park compared to everyone one else, and that was without 80 or 160.  I think we can safely say summer conditions are here.  Don’t forget about 15 m.  Band looks to be open at the start but not too many takers.

The upcoming weekend has the Ukrainian DX Classic RTTY test, so let’s see how much activity we get on RTTY.  Please join us Thursday evening and keep those diddles all tuned up for the weekend..
