AMSAT 51 on 51 Award

Okay, guys and gals. 

The first two submissions for this award have arrived in my email account (on 
the same day). Due to the fact that some people that are not members of the -BB 
or do not get the Journal or whatever might not have an equal chance to work 
towards this award, I have decided to leave the initial submission period open 
until midnight February 7. At that time, I will take all the submissions 
received and put them into a hat and draw for the order of issuance.  

Remember, this award is the only valid in 2005. Rules for this award follow.

The AMSAT 51 on 51 Award is given to any station that makes contact with 51 
different stations on AMSAT's newest satellite, AO-51, during the year 2005. 
The award is designed to promote friendship, and encourage contact with 
handheld and first-time satellite users. Applicants are encouraged to include 
contacts with stations making their first satellite contacts. 
Contacts may be in any mode (Voice/Packet/PSK-31) and on any band (V/U, V/S, 
L/S, L/U, H/U). To receive the award, you must submit your log entries either 
electronically or by photocopy. Entries must indicate date and time (UTC) of 
the contact, callsign and grid square of the contacted station, and mode used. 
Only contacts made between 1 January, 2005 and 31 December, 2005 are eligible. 
Logbooks may be submitted until 30 April, 2006. QSL cards are not required, 
however logbooks may be checked against other applicant's logs.

Production costs for this award have been underwritten by an anonymous donor to 
honor Robin Haighton VE3FRH who served as AMSAT President during the 
construction and launch of AO-51. Consequently all award fees will be applied 
to the AMSAT Eagle fund. 

The donation for the award is $10.00 (US Funds) and AMSAT members receive a 
$5.00 discount. Award fees may be paid through the AMSAT Online Store once you 
have received confirmation of eligibility from the Director of Contests and
