    I am in the Black Rock desert for an event called Burning man. I have an HF setup on my living container (working the event) and am looking to get a 1x1. Any ideas for fun or interesting 1x1 calls appreciated. I tried for W0W but it was taken for the dates I am looking for (Aug 22 to Sept 5th-ish).

    I had a lot of fun with K1T (search the call as W7UUU/K1T - page is still up)

    Seems to be a popular event. W7B, K5E, K1S already reserved for Burning Man.

    Most of the zero calls are reserved for Kansas QSO Party.

    Ah, Gerlach Nevada! If you get a chance to see Fly Geyser (a bit northwest from the party), you should go. Nevada's only realio, trulio geyser, even though humans may have helped get it started.

    Please don't encourage the burners to trample the playa or surroundings.

    I've never been to Burning Man but have wanted to.

    Maybe next year, or the year after.

    Yeah, I know it's in the middle of no place; that should be part of the fun. We could drive there if we want to kill about ten hours.

    I'd think a "BM" suffix (1x2) would be very cool. I didn't check, but it's easy to do, to see if K7BM, W7BM, N7BM or anything with BM is available.

    Then, explain to contacts it's not about "bowel movement.":p
