They plan to have an array of fields beginning 150 miles out broadcasting current Oshkosh information on ATIS and a text message alert system. A very simple dedicated web page would be a good idea too since you can often get a cell/data connection in flight.

The key will be timely and accurate updates which hasn't been a strength in the past.

This needs to happen INTERNALLY to the OSH staff as well. There have been plenty of episodes discussed that showed lack of internal communication causing issues.
