NS RTTY this Thursday

Ken K6MR

Greetings Diddlers:

A small group last week but good numbers.  Welcome back to K8JT who has been gone for a bit.  This is, of course, our first NS of the New Year (Dilbert’s objections not withstanding) so welcome to everyone who has joined us this last year and hope to see everyone printing on this trip around ol’ Sol.  Now if Mr. Sol would provide us some solar flux I’m sure we’d all be a bit merrier.

The upcoming weekend is RTTY Roundup.  Hopefully it’s not the first you’ve heard of it.  Go everything working?  Diddling with the best of them?  Great.  Join us Thursday evening and give it a go.  If you are not sure everything works, it’s even more important to join us!  Test out the diddle machine and have time to fix whatever.


And don’t forget the two RU practice sessions Friday afternoon/evening.  2200Z and 0200Z.  FTx sessions follow the RTTY sessions if you are so inclined.
