AMSAT Robert W. Barbee Jr., W4AMI Award

 

Another satellite award is the Robert W. Barbee Jr., W4AMI Satellite Operator Achievement Award. It is awarded for the submission of 1,000 satellite contacts on OSCAR-6 or later satellites. There is an endorsement for each additional 1,000 and a special certificate at 5,000. To receive the award, send $5.00 for AMSAT members or $10.00 for non members and postage. Send to AMSAT Director of Contests and Awards, Bruce Paige, KK5DO.

If you have 1,000 or more contacts on satellite, send in for this nice award and get onn. Remember to keep your log of every contact. Every time you say hello to your friend on a satellite, log it. In no time at all, you will have enough for the award.

To submit for this award, email a copy of your log in Microsoft Excel format XLS(X) or ADI(F) to kk5do at amsat dot org. You do not need to extract confirmed contacts from LoTW, this is simply all contacts you have made even if while roving. All contacts have to have your call sign in the reported call such as KK5DO, KK5DO/3, HP/KK5DO/MM, VE7/KK5DO.

Just a little history, Robert W. Barbee Jr., W4AMI, was a very prolific operator and in his honor this certificate was created and the first certificate was issued to him on June 27, 1994. He has since become an SK and his local club has taken over his call sign. The award was originally the W4AMI Satellite Operator Achievement Award. The local club asked me not to use their call sign for the award. I changed the award to The Robert W. Barbee, Jr. W4AMI Satellite Operator Achievement Award. And here we are today, finally having issued over 100 certificates and over 30 of the 5,000 certificate. Bruce, KK5DO, 04/19/2020
