SMARC will be returning the RT66 OTA! in 2020 as W6R! Get ready for a fun filled week this September as we put on our contesting pants and get some contacts for the mother road! We have even packed the week with more activities and events than any year previously. We hope to make it bigger and better than every before!

Current Details:

Date: September 12th – 20th, 2020

Call: W6R

You can operate as W6R from home at any time during the event as long as you coordinate your operation time with SMARC. We’ll be publishing a table soon and have a signup sheet to operate. You can always get on last minute as well as long as you let us know so we can make sure multiple people aren’t on the same band.

Special Events:
Gay Parita operations from a real life former RT66 Gas Station!
Operations in the new Tech Day shop and station!
Combined operating BBQ and…wait for it…Q3 TECH DAY!!
