I'm interested, but not up for camping out. You going to be there the
whole time so I don't have to worry about my gear getting swiped? Do
you have an appropriate pavilion-style tent to keep the sun off us?
As for callsigns, I have a club callsign that's not in play for FD;
I'll check with the other folks who are in the club to see if they mind.
Everyone is on his honor to observe the supervision and subband requirements.
Lastly... upgrade, dude. :)
