Sparks from the Spa Newsletter – April 2018

Hello all,
Is springtime coming soon? Let’s hope so. The Easter Bunny has come and gone, so hopefully, we will be seeing some greening up outside.

Attached is the April issue of the Sparks from the Spa Newsletter, I hope you enjoy it.

This coming Monday, (April 9), is our monthly club meeting. It is being held at the usual location, namely the Wilton EMS building, off of Jones Road. As usual, the club meeting is at 7 PM, and the business meeting is held just before that at 6:30 PM.

This month’s speaker is Mike Levy K2ZIP, and the topic will be:

Lessons Learned: Ham Radio and other considerations in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands after Hurricanes Irma and Maria

The response to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma still serve as learning experiences for state and local leaders, disaster experts, federal government agencies, and the United States as a whole. This presentation provides advice to anyone with a stake in disaster response, relief, and recovery, including hams living in the impacted area as well as those responding from elsewhere to help.

Mike will be speaking from first-hand experience, as he went to PR to help with the relief effort from Maria. It should be an interesting subject, I hope to see you all there.

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.

Sparks from the Spa Newsletter – December 2017

Hello all,

Merry Xmas, Happy Chanukah, or whichever holiday you are celebrating this month.
Attached is the December issue of Sparks from the Spa newsletter.

Just a reminder that our December 11 meeting is our annual holiday get together at the usual location in the Wilton EMS Squad building. There will not be a Board of Directors meeting, instead the General Membership meeting will begin at 6:30 PM (instead of the usual 7:00 PM). The program will just be you and whatever you want to talk about with your fellow hams.
Feel free to bring along some empty calories in the form a snack to share with everyone. If you are able, you can also bring along an unwrapped toy to be donated to a needy child. We will start at 6:30 and it will last until the last one of us leaves the door. We hope you have some fun.
