Re: 9600 PACSAT contacts count?

Hi James,

Yes, they do count!! Get yourself over to the AMSAT web page for the rules:

AMSAT gives you 3 points for each contact while ARRL only counts 2 points --
but they still count.  You are supposed to upload a greetings message to ALL
with the subject being Field Day Greetings with your class and section in
the body.  Your upload counts as a message and  you download as many other
greetings messages as possible -- they must be to ALL according to the AMSAT

Hope to see you on the birds!!  :-)
