Hamsat digipeat contacts OK for AMSAT Field Day 2000!!



Field Day 2000 is almost here!
The event starts at 1800 UTC 24JUN00.

Please note that we are trying a last-minute change to the AMSAT Field Day
2000 rules.  This should not have major impact on scores, but will encourage
the use of digital satellites capable of "digipeat" operation.

In the list of rules for 1999, the following item was shown:

"Satellite digipeat QSO's do not count for any score and the use of gateway
stations to uplink/downlink is not allowed."

For Field Day 2000, the rule shall read:

"Satellite digipeat QSO's count as digital contacts (i.e. 3 points each) but
the use of gateway stations to uplink/downlink is not allowed."

Good luck on AMSAT Field Day 2000!!

Be sure to send your results, using the form at amsat.org, to me via e-mail
at amacalli@danielind.com or via mail to:  14714 Knights Way Drive, Houston,
TX   77083-5640.  Comments and photos are encouraged.
