It’s here again — the most fun event on ham radio and Springfield, Mo. area is at the center of that fun experience. If you have never been on the ‘other ‘ side of a major pileup, here’s your chance. You do this from the comfort of your own station, home, mobile or portable and at any time. All you have to do is make an accurate log of the time to send along to myself or Cliff KA0EML at the end. Just select one of the frequencies, (or nearby) make sure it is clear and toss out your message “W6R, Route 66 On the Air listening”. Join us on Saturday at the Rt 66 Historic Park on West College. We will be operating a Field Day type operation from 0900 – 1500 to let the public see how much fun Amateur Radio is. Save this operating schedule and rules. Join the fun! 618 975 3981 is my cell phone for more information. Don’t be shy and do not miss this incredible experience.

INTERFERENCE:

Please note that effort will be made to avoid any interference on adjacent frequencies and other stations using these frequencies during the event, however with band conditions and other factors beyond our control, some interference may occur and we apologize if that happens.

WORKING THE BANDS:

We encourage our participating stations to work all bands as possible, however all stations may not have the capabilities to work some of the shown bands. It is also suggested that each participating station attempt to work the 80 meter band for those “close in” stations.

Please have patience when working the event as band conditions, QRM, and location may affect the stations ability to communicate with everyone.

PARTICIPATING STATIONS OPERATOR SCHEDULE:

Each participating station do their own time scheduling of operators, since this is a weeklong event not all participating stations will have the personnel to operate all the event hours. Again we ask for your patience in contacting all the stations, if you don’t hear them on for a period of time, check back at a later time. Again since this is a weeklong event, all participating stations are doing the best they can to insure that you are able work them all during the timeframe of the event.

Route 66 Mobile and Repeaters:

Any amateurs operating while actually driving along Route 66 during the special event period are encouraged to take part in the event, by using the designation “mobile 66” for phone or /m66 for CW after their callsign. All other amateurs are welcome to contact these mobile operators.

Some of the participating stations will also be operating this event by using their local VHF/UHF repeaters. Check the ARRL repeater guide for possible repeater frequencies if you’re in their local area.
