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.
Sunday - May 23rd, 2021
Location: North Haven Fairgrounds
Time: 8:30 AM - 1:30 PM
Talk-In: 442.500 / Event: 145.505 Simplex
We were told that t-shirts and lunch would be provided.
Unfortunately, we were given short notice this year because ASRC had a difficult time finding a venue to host the walk.
We will need at least 5 volunteers to make this commitment.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP if you can help.
After many years of waiting, we are getting close to deploying the new 505 repeater system. A new TKR-751 repeater, new controller, antenna and several other components have been purchased. We expect the new system to go online with the next 30 days. We also plan on resuming the online audio stream for both the 147.505 and 442.500 repeaters.
In the meantime, you can check out the temporary stream of the test system by clicking the button below. You might hear some testing going on but it's currently on a dummy load.
SPARC has had a Facebook page for several years but it seems some members are unaware of it. Although, you can always get the latest news here on our website, sparc.us, the Facebook page allows members to interact by posting and replying. Also some posts might not be "Club News" but something you would like to share with the other members. Members' posts will be in the Community section. Please check it out, like and follow the page. Just remember - facebook.com slash followed by our Club callsign!
Saturday Mornings at 9:30!
Brenda is still running the breakfast net for those that do not want to go to the actual Club breakfast. Please check in on the 442.500 on Saturday mornings for the Breakfast Net. You can also join us on the SPARC Chat Room. Many participants have webcams, although it's certainly not required.
The next SPARC meeting is September 13th, 2021.
SPARC normally meets on the second Monday of April and September at 7:00 P.M. We having been meeting at the Twin Pines Diner at 34 Main Street, East Haven. We are considering meeting at the 91 Diner in New Haven for our September meeting. Check back for updates! Talk-in is the 442.500 repeater.
The meetings are open to all!
