Here's how I see it:
The BBS will probably not be in use 100% dutycycle during
Field Day. And your station will not add any more
than say 1% load to the channel. I dont think that that 1%
increase will bother the BBS that much for this one day...
Lets say three of you beacon once every 5 minutes during FD.
That is 3 seconds out of every 300 or about 1%. Not much.
Hope that helps.
