Sparks from the Spa Newsletter – January 2018

Hello All,

Hope you enjoy this month’s issue of the Sparks from the Spa Newsletter. As I write this it’s snowing, and it’s also expected to get very cold this weekend.

Don’t forget, the club meeting is this Monday, January 8, at the usual location, Wilton EMS building just off Jones Road in Wilton. The Board meeting is at 6:30 PM, followed at 7:00 PM by the General membership meeting. This month’s topic is the new digital mode FT-8. Be sure to join us, it may be cold outside, but it will be warm with friendship at the meeting.
