Greetings Diddlers,

A smaller group posting to 3830 last week, although I’m pretty sure we had 2 or 3 more stations that didn’t post.  Welcome to KK6P (who is really W7IV in his CA disguise), who has popped in before.  Paul has been building a super station so he’s probably just checking it out.  Welcome and keep us on your schedule Paul.

The upcoming weekend is Field Day, and I don’t know what the RTTY presence might be.  There is the Ukrainian DX DIGI contest, which lists RTTY and PSK63 as the modes.  So maybe in-between FD you can snag a few DX stations as well.  With the forecast temperature of 113F in my area, you can bet I’m staying home and hugging the air conditioner!

So if you are keeping cool in the shack on Thursday, please join us for a bit of keyboarding fun.  Here are the details so you can warm up the ether:
