For this event they will be using APRS (VHF 144.390) followed by 30m CW and 40m CW. From their Twitter account @PBH5 comes the following:
So if you have nothing else to do on a long weekend why not dial them up and give a listen…. You can even send them in location updates off their hf beacons via the web. This info is on their website…
