ATTENTION EDITORS - Preliminary announcement of OSCAR SKN 2005



Dear editors of amateur radio publications:

Please include mention of OSCAR SKN 2005 in an issue which will be in your 
readers'  hands by December 2004.  Here is the preliminary announcement:

STRAIGHT KEY NIGHT ON OSCAR 2005

Once again AMSAT North America is pleased to sponsor Straight Key Night on 
OSCAR for enjoyment by all radio amateurs.

OSCAR SKN 2005 will run for 24 hours, 0000-2400 UTC, on 1 January 2005.  It's 
very simple: no rules, no scoring, and no need to send in a log.  Just 
operate CW through any OSCAR satellite using a straight hand key, working as many 
other SKN participants as you can.  Contacts via the moon (OSCAR Zero) count 
too.

As in past years, all participants are requested to nominate one of the 
operators they worked for "Best Fist" recognition.  Your nominee need not have the 
best fist of those you heard, just of those you worked.  Please send all 
nominations to me at w2rs@amsat.org.  A list of those nominated will be published 
via the AMSAT News Service in early February, and in The AMSAT Journal.

73, 

Ray W2RS
for AMSAT NA
