Great to work a number of diddlers in the original digital mode Sprint last weekend. A wonderful tribute to Don, W4OC. Apparently many missed SC, which Don often provided to all of us. RIP OM.
Our RTTY get together had just over double digit participation. 20 was a no show, but 160 had some activity. So don’t forget to check both just in case someone is around.
This weekend is the CQ WPX RTTY, so take some time to tune up the diddle machine. Not only can you join us at our normal time on Thursday, there will be two other practice sessions in normal WPX contest format. So check them all out and
make sure you are ready to make the weekend productive.
