I received this bulletin from the ARRL. For anyone who was planning to copy the Field Day Bulletin in Morse Code or in digital and hoping for the transmissions from K6KPH as a backup as is possible in most years. K6KPH will not be on the air this Field Day.

ARLX008 K6KPH Unable to Handle June 20 West Coast Qualifying Run or Field Day Transmissions for West Coast

Because of the National Park Service national park shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, K6KPH – the Maritime Radio Historical Society (MRHS) amateur station in California – will not be able to transmit
the scheduled June 20 West Coast Qualifying Run or any Field Day bulleting transmissions for west coast listeners over the June 27-28 weekend.

MHRS Transmitter Supervisor Steve Hawes, WB6UZX, said personnel will not be allowed to enter park facilities at least until July 1, and plans for the annual “Night of Nights” event in mid-July are still in flux.
