ATTENTION EDITORS! (SKN '99 ANNOUNCEMENT)



Hi,



Here is a preliminary version of the 1999 OSCAR SKN bulletin,

intended primarily for magazine editors and others with long

publication lead times.  A similar bulletin will be sent out

via the Internet and packet radio in early December.

                    27TH ANNUAL SKN ON OSCAR





You're most cordially invited to join in the 27th annual Straight

Key Night on OSCAR, sponsored by AMSAT-NA for Amateur Radio

satellite enthusiasts worldwide.



It's entirely unofficial: no rules, no scoring and no need to

send in a log.  Just call CQ SKN in the CW passband segment of

any OSCAR satellite from 0000 to 2359 UTC on January 1, 1999, or

answer a CQ SKN call from another station.  OSCAR Zero (EME)

contacts count too.  Of course, all SKN operating must be done

with a straight hand key.



Those participating are encouraged to nominate someone they

worked for recognition as having the "best fist." To send in a

"best fist" nomination, please address it via e-mail to

<w2rs@amsat.org>, via packet radio to W2RS @ WA2SNA or W2RS @

GB7HSN (whichever is closer to you), or via "snail-mail" to W2RS'

callbook address.  Those nominated will be featured in a bulletin

sent to Amateur Radio publications and posted via ANS to packet

radio and the Internet in early February.



73, Ray
