3 min read

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 10th – 18th, 2022

Call: W6R

Over the years we’ve had a few issues with getting everyone coordinated and on board with a certain set of procedures. This year we’ve decided to try to do a better job of coordinating W6R and its operation to make sure we meet all requirements set by the CBARC. This year, you will need to be a current member of SMARC and use the below form to be able to operate W6R at home. Anyone not a member will not be allowed to turn in logs and is asked to please not use W6R for this event. You do not have to be a member to operate at either public event on both Saturday’s.

You can always get on last minute as well as long as you sign up below so we can make sure multiple people aren’t on the same band. Using the form below notifies the trustee directly and add your spot to the list for others to review. We’ve published an operation schedule for those hunting W6R to follow here: W6R Operating Schedule Please check this schedule before signing up for a spot.

Remember, we can have W6R on the same band as long as its a different mode. If someone signed up for CW, another can do digital or phone at the same time on the same band. Just don’t change modes!

Gay Partia Operations – September 11th

For the first weekend we will be operating from the Gay Parita Old Route 66 filling station on Sunday the 11th. Operations will begin at 2:00pm, and run till about 6:00pm that evening. Come out and join us for this fun filled weekend of radio operating! We get people from all over the world that stop in to see the museum and operate the radio as W6R. Operating at this event does not require signing up below, just show up and have fun!

RT66 OTA! BBQ – September 17th

Come out and join us at the Tech Day shop for a BBQ Dinner and RT66 OTA operations! It will be a fun filled day of radio operating and our club meeting at 5 at the tech day shop! Operating at this event does not require signing up below, just show up and have fun! We start operating at 11am and will continue operating until worn out Saturday evening. Snacks only for lunch.
