Greetings Diddlers,

Sorry for the late reminder.  Of course everyone just knows to show up on Thursday even if I don’t remind you, Right?  Of course.

Last week was a solid double digit affair, with all the usual suspects present.  N3QE blew everyone away again. Must some magic air or something on the east coast.  Of course out here 80 and 160 aren’t doing much, though I did work W6SX on 160 with the sun blazing in the sky.  Don’t forget to check 15 meters:  N3QE moved me to 15 and it was no problem.  Hopefully those sunspots will keep doing their thing.

The upcoming weekend has the DL-DX RTTY Test, so there is a full 24 hours of diddling fun for everyone.  It looks to be very popular across the pond, so maybe with some openings we can jump in also.  It also has the weekend saving 6 hour class if you want just a small effort.

So warm up the diddle machine and join us Thursday evening and make sure everything is tip top for the weekend.
