Bandwidth for a weekend @ Gaylord National Harbor, DC metro area

I help with an event at the Gaylord at National Harbor in Maryland. It's a music and video gaming festival. The network team for the event is looking for options on getting bandwidth for ~5 days across a weekend at the hotel. RF or handoff in building.

WISPA.ORG would be a good resource.

there, you might convince them to put up the same thing and work with that.

(and should only need one since they'd be the control for the remote

If you setup legistics and aren't the same weekend as Shmoo (I think you
are) I can help with that setup and check the regs and use my callsign.
