Put a little SPARC in your life!

Due to Governor Lamont's decision to close restaurants in Connecticut, SPARC breakfasts will be suspended until further notice. Please check back on this website for any updates on this and other Club activities.
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.
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!
Since we won't be able to physically meet on Saturday mornings, we are trying something new. Please join us 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.
Click on the "Media" section of this website to see photos or videos that have been brought over from past SPARC events! We will be adding more content from the archives, so check back often! Hopefully some new content with our current members will be added from future events as well.
The next SPARC meeting will we postponed.
We hope to be able to have a spring meeting at some point.
Please check back for any updates.
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!
Due to the COVID-19 threat, the walk will be virtual this year.
Please check back in 2021 for volunteer opportunities.
