Sparks from the Spa Newsletter – November 2018

Hi all,

It’s November and that time of the year to get out the pants with the stretchable waistbands!! I hope you and your family have a great Holiday season.

Here is your Sparks from the Spa Newsletter for November.

Our November meeting will be on Monday, November 12, at the Wilton EMS building, just off of Jones Road in Wilton. Meeting time will be at 6:30 for the board meeting, with the general meeting starting at 7:00 PM.

Our speaker will be Brian Szewczyk, NJ1F, He will be speaking about the WRTC 2018 (World Radiosport Team Championship) experience, He has participated in previous WRTC events, so he is no newcomer about this contest. The WRTC was held on July 12 to 16 this year, in Germany.

Please be sure to come to hear about ham radio being operated, unlike any other contest you may have participated in.

Sparks from the Spa Newsletter – October 2018

ARRL LogoHello All,

I was a bit late with the September issue, as time flew by until it was too late. So if you think you somehow missed the September issue, don’t worry, you’re not crazy. Here is the October Sparks from the Spa Newsletter.

Our October meeting will be held at the usual place, the Wilton emergency squad. 6:30 PM is the board meeting, and 7:00 PM for the general meeting. Randy, KL7TJZ, a member of the Silent Service, will be our October 8 speaker.

While in the military he handled communications aboard submarines. He will talk about how subs communicate with the outside world.

This should be interesting.
