Club News & Activities


Who we are

This South Central Connecticut area amateur radio club offers 3 repeaters, some with EchoLink and IRLP.  Members enjoy weekly breakfast get togethers.  We sponsor several weekly nets on the Club repeaters and a simplex net.  We also assist with volunteer events, such as walk-a-thons throughout the year.


UHF Repeater Status - Dues / Donations Needed!

Amplifier - Was found to have low output power.  Will be sent in for repair.

Power Supply - One of 2 fans dead.  2 more ordered.

Between the expense of the amp repair and the fans, it is expected to cost about $600.

If you haven't paid your dues or would like to make a donation, it would be greatly appreciated.  Please go to the INFO / DONATION section of this website.  Thank you. 

SPARC would like to acknowledge the generous donations of Ed (W1YSM), Brenda (KW1YL) and Rich (K1RSU).


New Feature - SPARC Chat Room!

Click on "Chat" on the menu and check out the all new SPARC Chat.  No Flash needed!  It should be much easier to log in than the old version.



The next meeting is Monday, April 13, 2020

SPARC normally meets on the second Monday of April and September at 7:00 P.M.  We meet at the Twin Pines Diner at 34 Main Street, East Haven.  Talk-in is the 442.500 repeater.  

The meetings are open to all!
