Rt. 66 On the Air has begun! The event runs from tonight at 7PM until Sunday the 14th at 7 PM. 19 operators from Southwest Missouri signed up to participate. We have 2 public stations that will be set up Saturday Sept. 6 at Lake Springfield at the Outdoor Fitness event at Lake Springfield and at the Rt. 66 Park on W. College in Springfield. These are temporary stations as those signed up to participate will be participating from home.

Springfield hams are excited to be finally granted the call W6R so the home of Rt. 66 can join in on the fun!


Sept. 13th SMARC will have their annual Guns and Radios picnic at the Reppert Farm. We will once again meet at the Red Cross and car pool from there at 1 pm. All are welcome to join us.

We will be furnishing dogs and burgers! Please feel welcome to bring your firearms as Jeff has a 50 and a 100 yard range to practice on.

Please bring a side dish to share!
