Re: OSCAR - Acronym for...?



Clint,

As the current President of Project OSCAR Inc., I felt some responsibility
to answer your question. I went through our current Constitution and bylaws
and find no reference to the original definition of OSCAR. I am inclined
toward "Orbiting Satellite Carrying Amateur Radio" but that is just my
opinion. 

I have 26 boxes of company original documents all the way back to OSCAR I
but I don't plan to go through them for this definition. 

I am still looking for your reason on why you state "This is actually more
important than it sounds...(grin)"

As someone else said, maybe some of the original members of Project OSCAR
will recall the definition.

Some Web sites state that OSCAR is an acronym for "Orbital Satellite  
Carrying Amateur Radio."

Or is it "Orbiting Satellite Carrying Amateur Radio?"

This is actually more important than it sounds...(grin)
