Hewlett-Packard Boise Campus & Voice of Idaho Amateur Radio Clubs did joint FD outting in local park - Meridian, Idaho near Boise. Two towers with yagis, other wire antennas, etc. Ran 11 Alpha Idaho on lots of bands and modes - even had a busy GOTA . Was a big operation. All going well until 3:30AM. Park sprinklers came on! City assured us they would be turned off for us. WOW! Never seen so many people move that fast that early in the day! No damage but was EXCITING for several minutes! Great way to wake up if asleep at key early morning. Had a lot of fun. Look for us next year. Idaho wants to work you.

Sounds like a great operation, albeit one where the overnight operators had to hold umbrellas in one hand!

Let's follow the rules set for us by the ARRL Officers after advertising for comments and then studying the Comments attached to this policy and as adults,we should follow the rules accepted and published by the ARRL.   If you don't like the rules, you may want to put together your own committee and take your recommendations to the IAUR for their process required to get it to be an international rule.
