Hi, Kent,
                Still set up your APRS and use that as Education or training
for the bonus

1/  Educate people on the use of  APRS in general

2/ Train them on the use of APRs in an Emergency 

This should cover the rules for Field day if the rules allow

Hi Kent
             You are correct.
The demo mode has been dropped for the 2008 FD.
It has been replaced with an Education or training bonus.
