SKN ON OSCAR 2005



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.

Unfortunately, however, this year there again appears to be a distinct 
shortage of satellites that will relay CW.  As of this writing, only FO-29 and AO-7 
are available.  So, please make the best possible use of those.

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,
