Is there going to be a special event station at Burning Man?

    Burning tower? Burning yagi? Burning vertical? I guess there are some novel engineering challenges there? :eek:

    No special event station or amateur radio activities planned; but there is activity and suggested frequencies for 2m FM, and an IRLP node is active: http://cq-blackrock.org/freqs.php

    This is a temporary city set up one week per year in the middle of nowhere (desert lands in northwestern Nevada): https://burningman.org/event/black-rock-city-guide/2019-black-rock-city-plan/

    After Burning Man, the entire "city" is taken apart and removed, leaving only desert wildlands. Quite an undertaking!

    clothing is optional.

    A friend of mine goes every year, and every year he gets a little weirder.

    He's a ham though, may be a pre-existing condition unrelated to Burning Man.

    seems like a project you could start!

    What's left is hardly "wildland." More like scorched earth. Even the most "deserted" areas of the Great Basin have
    native flora and fauna. Which the Burning Man QTH might have had at one time.

    Burning Man is an instant city of 70,000 with a full complement of urban "stuff."
