Hello all,

We hope to see you there.

Sparks from the Spa Newsletter – November 2022

Hello all,

I hope everyone is doing well.   I also hope you got a chance to get out and see the leaves changing color this fall.  N2EKQ and I got out a couple of times, and it was much nicer than we expected.  All I heard on the news was that the colors were going to be muted due to the weather during the summer.  I don’t think that was the case.

I also hope some of you got on the air last Saturday to work in the NYS QSO party.  I got on and had fun.  I didn’t beat anyone I’m sure, but the 30 or so SSB contacts I made were quite a nice change of pace for me, you usually find me on FT8,  Thanks Brian, NJ1F for letting us know about the party.

Attached is the November Sparks from the Spa Newsletter.  I hope you enjoy it.

I have set up the Zoom meeting for the November 14 meeting, (6:30 PM board, 7:00 PM General meeting).  Below is the Zoom invite, and I will be sending that out again later, closer to the meeting, along with the program information.
