Greetings from Black Rock City

A few people have asked if we would be running an OpenBTS network at Burning Man this year.  Well, we are.  Six of us have been here since Wednesday 22 August.  We have three cell sites running and are in the process of installing two more.  We are making phone calls already, but have not yet opened the network to the public.  Details are here and here.  These pages will be updated as the system rolls out.
