Attention editors: OSCAR SKN 2004


This may seem a little early to announce, but the holiday period will be
with us sooner than we realize.  Begin to prepare now for this satellite
operating fun event!

You are cordially invited to participate in the 31st annual Straight Key
Night on OSCAR, conducted by AMSAT-NA for Radio Amateurs throughout the

There are no rules, no scoring and no logs required.  Just operate CW on any
OSCAR satellite, using a straight hand key, from 0000 UTC to 2400 UTC on 1
January 2004, working as many SKN stations as you can.  The moon (OSCAR
Zero) counts too.

In keeping with the friendly nature of this event, each participant is asked
to nominate one of the operators worked for "Best Fist."  It is not
necessary that your nominee have the best fist of anyone you heard, just of
those you worked.  Please send your nomination to W2RS via e-mail at
w2rs@amsat.org, or by snail-mail to W2RS via www.qrz.com.

Those nominated will be recognized in an ANS Bulletin to be published in
early February, and in The AMSAT Journal.

[ANS thanks Ray W2RS for the above information.]
