ROUTE 66 ON THE AIR

Back in 2000, we organized a new special operating event; Route 66 On the Air! to celebrate the highway's
75th anniversary in 2001. It turned out to be wildly popular and quickly outgrew our small club so administration
was turned over to the current sponsor, the Citrus Belt ARC in California. Route 66 on the Air is still an annual
event and has grown from the original 10 stations to 19 HAM radio clubs and 2 Rovers operating from locations
along the length of Old Route 66.

For details on how to participate visit the Citrus Belt ARC info page.

The next Route 66 on the Air Special Event is 9-17 September, 2017 (UTC)


The first event certificate issued by the NADXA for theRoute 66 On the Air! Event in 2001
(In 2000 each station issued their own QSL but there wasn't an overall event certificate)

 

2016 NADXA RESULTS

Once again the members of the NADXA supported three stations for the Route 66 On The Air Special Event;
W6T (Rover 2), W6G (Flagstaff), and W6S (Rover 1) and again issued QSL cards that form a panorama.
This year W6T loaded up the steel truss bridge (shown on the QSL card) and used it as an antenna .


Pretty good results even with sometimes marginal band conditions.
W6T: 2385
W6G: 3591
W6S: 2080
Total: 7956
