2017 ROUTE 66 ON THE AIR
TOTAL CONTACTS LIST
********** A Word of Thanks **********
With the Route 66 On The Air event for 2017 concluded, I would like to THANK all that participated, especially to the clubs W6A-W6U that put time and effort to make it all work.
With that said, there has been an issue of band / noise conditions that has affected our event this year. It has been reported that some stations have not been heard or worked, I have been in contact with our participating clubs and all have told the same story regarding the not so good conditions. I was also told of solar flares that contributed to this condition, then add in the hurricanes and all its trouble and that adds up to major issues.
I have been working with most of these clubs since the event started 18 years ago and I can say without a doubt they give it their best each year. Each club has to gather members or outsiders to assist them to operate for as much time they can. Each do the best they can with what they have to work with.
In closing, I appreciate all the comments that have been sent to me along with the understanding and patience it takes to work all the stations.
Hope to hear you on the air next year…… September 8-16, 2018
Thanks again for participating…..
