2021 NADXA Results

NADXA again supported three call signs for the Route 66 On The Air Special Event; W6S (Rover 1), W6G (Flagstaff),
and W6T (Rover 2) with QSL cards that when lined up make a panorama of Arizona 66 (Rand McNally 1926 Junior

'20s & '30s 66 East of "Don't Forget" Winona, abandoned '40s 66 SE of Buffalo Range Road, '30s 66 in the AZ Ghost

Bellement and from abandoned '20s & '30s alignments East of Parks, AZ. W6G operated from NADXA members
home QTHs in and around Flagstaff, AZ

The bands really hot and cold this year but had more really good runs than in the past.

NADXA again supported three call signs for the Route 66 On The Air Special Event; W6S (Rover 1), W6G (Flagstaff),
and W6T (Rover 2) with QSL cards that when lined up make a panorama of Arizona 66 (AZ-DOT 1961). This year W6S
operated from 5 different Old 66 locations East of Flagstaff. W6T operated from the intersection of the '20s, '30s, and '40s

The bands were soft this year but FT8 was added as a very popular mode for W6G and W6T. The photo on the top of the W6G
card is a 360 degree panorama of Flagstaff's Route 66 Park where original cement of the 1940s alignment is preserved.

NADXA again supported three call signs for the Route 66 On The Air Special Event; W6S (Rover 1), W6G (Flagstaff),
and W6T (Rover 2) with QSL cards that when lined up make a panorama. Because this year is the 20th Anniversary of
the NADXA starting the Route 66 On The Air Special Event, this year our QSLs make up a panorama of the inaugeral
event certificate from 2000, a list of the NADXA members from that year, and a clip about how the NADXA came up
with the idea. This year W6S operated from Old 66 East of Flagstaff in the town of (Don't Forget) Winona. W6T
operated from Bellement on Old 66 West of Flagstaff and the Twin ArrowsTrading Post to the East. W6G operated
from NADXA members home QTHs in and around Flagstaff.
