The stations will be on the air during each day of the festival, which runs October 10, 2008, through October 19, 2008. Every day the call signs rotate through the bands being worked. This will give all amateurs the best chance to work all 5 stations, regardless of their location.
Upon request, stations will receive a QSL card from each special event call worked. In addition, they will receive a special certificate if they contact all 5 special event calls.
