Fly Your QSL on Phase 3D!

AMSAT-NA Phase 3D Project

August 2, 1999: CD-ROM Burned!

The QSL card CD-ROM has been burned and mounted on the Phase 3D spacecraft. So, new QSLs are no longer being accepted. Thanks to all who participated, and best wishes for a successful launch!

Here is the original announcement.

May 3, 1998: Fly Your QSL Card on P3D

Attention radio amateurs worldwide - this is your chance to really be a part of the Phase 3D satellite program by putting your QSL card into orbit! During May, AMSAT-NA will be collecting QSL cards, which will be scanned and converted into digital images. These images will then be saved onto a computer CD-ROM, which will be secured to the Phase 3D spacecraft and launched with P3D. Your QSL card will get a ride into orbit right along with the Phase 3D satellite! This is a limited time offer and subject to any restrictions imposed by any (future) launch announcement or launch timetable. AMSAT-NA is suggesting cards be sent in as soon as possible.

AMSAT-NA is suggesting a minimum donation of $25.00 (US). Proceeds from the 'Fly Your QSL on Phase 3D' campaign will be used in offsetting the overall P3D program costs.

If you want to fly your QSL card on Phase 3D, send your card and donation to:

  Fly Your QSL on Phase 3D
  c/o AMSAT-NA
  850 Sligo Avenue, Suite 600
  Silver Spring, MD 20910-4703

Checks or money orders should be made out to 'AMSAT'. Please do not send cash. QSL cards will also be accepted at the AMSAT booth at the upcoming Dayton Hamvention.
