I live walking distance from Route 66 in Berwyn, IL
They have a yearly Car show.
Back in 2001 I remember Ham Radio Operators were transmitting at the Route 66 car show having a contest along Route 66 Chicago - L.A. and I did some Shortwave listening and sent reports to obtain several QSL cards ,the same week I went to a First Day Ceremony for EID stamp and that happened a week or so before September 11 .... that was an event that made me forget about hobbies all together for months.

Jayelem,
I have the event postmark for Berwyn's 100th anniversary (did they have an official cover?)and my personal cachet is picture of the Spindle along with a route 66 shield. I have seen some Radio "stamps" before and even printed an article about the QSL cards before, but never started that collection. That seems very interesting, it is a shame I never got into Ham Radio's. Do your cards have stamps/labels with the call letters of the station and picture an eagle? I could start adding postmarks from Ham Radio Operators in Route 66 towns to my collection- that includes cachets, pictorial postmarks, precancels, and postcards.
