Route 66 On The Air

Mark your calendars for 9-17 September for Route 66 On The Air.  Once again,

we’ll celebrate the legend and lore of Route 66, “The Mother Road”.

‘Route 66 On The Air (R66OTA) is organized and sponsored by the Citrus Belt

Amateur Radio Club of San Bernardino, California (

In Oklahoma, amateur radio clubs in Tulsa, Oklahoma City, and Elk City will be

participating.  Oklahoma City has always been well represented in R66OTA.

To sign up as a R66OTA Radio Operator for Oklahoma City, contact Steve Duskin,

NE5SD ([email protected]) or Tom Webb, WA9AFM/5 ([email protected]).

You will be assigned a username (your call sign) and password to access the

R66OTA Registration Page.  Besides your name and call sign, please provide a

phone and email address in case we need to get in touch with you.

Operating slot reservation instructions will be sent to you after you have been

registered as a R66OTA radio operator.

You can ‘reserve’ two hour operating slots by day/time/band/mode.  Sign up for

as many slots as you can operate.  If you sign up to operate, please honor your

commitment and operate for the time slots for which you register.

Oklahoma City will again use the special event call sign W6K; Steve Duskin,

NE5SD is the trustee for the call sign.  Use of W6K must be authorized by the

trustee through the R66OTA Registration Page.  All W6K operations should be

conducted in the Oklahoma City Metro area and in the spirit of the event, as

close to Route 66 as practical.

Operations from Oklahoma City area landmarks associated with Route 66 are

encouraged, i.e. Cowboy Hall of Fame, the ’round barn’ and “Pop’s” in Arcadia,

Oklahoma History Center, Oklahoma State Capitol, the Route 66 Bridges west of

Bethany, etc.
