Note to editors -- OSCAR SKN 2001



This note is addressed primarily to editors of publications with long 
leadtimes.  We would appreciate your including an item based upon it in your 
issue most likely to be in readers' hands on or just before 1 January 2001.  

YOU'RE INVITED TO OSCAR SKN 2001

All radio amateurs worldwide are cordially invited to participate in 
AMSAT-NA's 29th annual Straight Key Night on OSCAR, to be held from 0000 to 
2400 UTC on 1 January 2001.  

It's totally informal: no rules, no scoring and no need to submit a log.  
Just have fun operating Morse with a straight hand key via any amateur radio 
satellite (including the moon).  Call CQ SKN or answer such calls from other 
stations.

In keeping with the friendly tradition of this event, each participant is 
encouraged to nominate someone he or she worked for "Best Fist."  Those 
nominated will be listed in an AMSAT News Service bulletin and in The AMSAT 
Journal.  Please send all Best Fist nominations to W2RS via e-mail 
(w2rs@amsat.org), packet radio (W2RS @ WA2SNA.NJ.USA.NA) or "snail-mail" to 
W2RS' callbook address.

73, Ray
