Welcome to W6JBT.ORG

 ROUTE 66 ON THE AIR STATION LINEUP

                            ***UPDATE***

Due to issues beyond the host club control, W6J Station that usually worked from Elk City, OK will not be participating this year.

This action was entirely made by the W6J station. We are sorry for the inconvenience and for the change in the overall station lineup.

W6J will also be removed from the 2018 Commemorative Certificate.

ADDITIONALLY:

Due to impeding weather in mid part and eastern states, please understand that some of the stations may be affected and may not be on the air as much as they would like. We want to make sure those stations affected by the storms, use good amateur radio practice by keeping their stations safe.

Normal event operating frequencies may also be affected due to use by emergency groups providing communication response needs. Look for event stations to be using other frequencies near those that are listed.

Looks like we’ve got the bugs worked out on ECHOLINK…so use W6JBT-R. We may still have a couple small adjustments to make, if you experience any issues, let me know.

My THANKS to Jon Montgomery for the hard work that he has been putting into the project
