SUNSAT OPERATING AWARD

SA AMSAT has introduced a SUNSAT Operating Award to reward stations for
the number of contacts they have made with individual stations.

There are three categories: Bronze for 25 contacts. Silver for 50
contacts and Gold for 100 contacts. The objective is to work as many
different callsigns as possible with the restriction that only one
contact per pass may be claimed for the Award. No duplicate contacts are
allowed, a station qualifies only once.

To claim the award applicants must submit a copy of their log, verified
by the chairman of a local Radio Club or two Amateurs to SA AMSAT, P O
Box 1842, Hillcrest 3650 South Africa There will additional surprises
for the first 3 successful applications.

Short-wave Listeners may also apply for the award. Their logs must
include the callsigns of both  the stations monitored.

The cost of the award is $5 or 5IRC's to cover postage.



Happy Hunting
