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.

Breakfast Net!

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.

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.
