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.

Sparks from the Spa Newsletter – July 2018

Hello All.

I hope you all survived the recent heat wave.

I am attaching the July issue of Sparks from the Spa Newsletter. It has the results of the June club elections, and also a summary of our Field Day efforts.

Hamfest

I am also attaching the flyer for our 33rd annual hamfest. It is being held on Sunday, Sept 9 at the fairgrounds in Ballston Spa. Please forward the flyer to all your friends.

Summer Break

Finally, as you most likely know, July and August are dark months for the club meetings. Please do not show up for the regular monthly club meetings. Our next regular meeting is the day after the hamfest, Monday, Sept 10.

Be sure you come to the hamfest, there will be a test later!!
