You are probably down in the 5 & 10m bands, but it appears they are starting to attempt on-playa frequency coordination. Probably not a bad idea, given all the infrastructure communications radios which are probably in the middle of spectrum consolidation and moving to narrower channels. I would send the folks below an email before they get very busy.
CALLING ALL TECHNO-GEEKS: PLAYA WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY SUMMIT - MAY 12
Are you an artist, camp and/or geek who will bring wireless/internet technology to the playa?
If you are planning a large-scale technological project, have an art project that absolutely requires Internet connectivity, or will be beaming any sort of frequencies from 900MHz to 5.8GHz into the airwaves above the playa, you are cordially invited and strongly requested to participate in the fifth Playa Wireless Summit hosted by the Burning Man Technology Department.
This year's summit will be held in San Francisco at the Internet Archive (but of course you can participate remotely -- we're geeks) at 7pm to 9pm on May 12, 2011.
PLEASE RSVP by emailing playatech (at) burningman (dot) com and include the following:
- your name
- name of your camp or project
- technology and frequency used, e.g. "controlling rolling spheres with Zigbee on 900 MHz", "want Internet uplink for camp", "RC plane on 2.4 GHz, frequency hopping"
We will add you to an email list and keep you posted on the details (e.g. address, dial-in number).
Thank you from the Burning Man Playa Tech Team.
