Special Event Stations to Look For, 23-24 June 2012

This is Field Day weekend, but there are still some special event stations scheduled.  I imagine they will be hard to find given how congested the bands will be, but still give them a shot.  Hopefully propagation is better this weekend than it was last weekend.
