Field Day

Howdy all,

If you are going to operate a satellite station during ARRL Field Day this 
year, please remember that some of us will be operating under the AMSAT Field 
Day rules. Under the ARRL rules, satellite is considered "one band" so you 
are able to only work a satellite station once for points. This is not true 
under AMSAT rules.Last year I ran into multiple instances of operators 
refusing to work us because they said we were a "dupe". In most cases, I was 
able to explain the situation. So if you hear W1MOO 5A VT trying to work you 
on multiple birds, please work us. We'll appreciate the extra points.

Good Luck and most importantly, Have Fun!!

W1MOO 5A VT (maybe 6A)
