SM030 – Cycle 66 Needs You / National Weather Festival

Cycle 66 Needs You

By Clay Mayrose WA6LBU

I am looking for volunteers to help with route safety for Cycle 66 2022. This is a bicycle event designed to highlight Route 66 as a tourism destination. There are three routes, and I will need 10-15 more Hams to help. Routes start and finish in downtown Edmond. The 66-mile route goes out Route 66 to Luther and then winds through Oklahoma County to the Capital and then back to Edmond. Operators are invited to attend the finish line festivities once their assignment is completed.

The event is on November 6th.

Follow the link below to sign up and thank you.

There is a fair amount of high-level interest in our state leadership and this is a great opportunity for Amateur Radio to shine.

National Weather Festival 2022

It’s fall and this year the National Weather Festival will be celebrated in-person at the National Weather Center on October 29 from 8 am to 1 pm. We’ve missed the last two years due to Covid 19 precautions and the weather community is ready to go “all-out” to celebrate the weather, this year. More information about this event is available at and there is no entrance fee for any activity.

This year the TV news channels will be heavily represented by their chase vehicles, helicopters, and on-air personalities. The emergency management community will be well represented, with city, county, and state departments in attendance. The mobile classroom of the National Weather Museum and Science Center with be on-site and it always has some interesting displays.

Look for the Oklahoma ARRL amateur radio presence that will be operated by the South Canadian Amateur Radio Society (SCARS) group at the City of Norman Emergency Management display and with the National Weather Museum. Feel free to stop by to listen/transmit from the facility.
