General Submission Rules for AMSAT Awards

General Submission Rules for AMSAT Awards To submit for AMSAT awards, you need to send copies (you may reduce the size to fit more on a page as long as I can read the QSO information) of the front and backs (if there is QSO information there) of your confirmed QSL cards (eQSL cards are not valid for AMSAT or ARRL awards. Email confirmations of a QSO are not acceptable) to AMSAT Director of Contests and Awards, Bruce Paige, KK5DO. The cost (unless otherwise noted below) is $5.00 for members (include your membership number) and $10.00 for non-members. All awards should be paid for after being reviewed by the AMSAT Awards Manager on thorough the AMSAT.ORG online store where postage rates are up-to-date.

In 2005 we added the ability to apply for the awards via email – the preferred method. Now that the AMSAT Online Store is in full operation, AMSAT is offering the ability to apply for and pay for any of the AMSAT Awards online.

2015 AMSAT will now accept ARRL LOTW entries towards all of the AMSAT awards.

Log into your LOTW account, click on ‘Your QSOs’. Select the station you want to include for your AMSAT award. Click on ‘Details’. Use a screen capture program or Windows Snipping tool and attach that screen shot.

The information displayed contains both callsigns, the DXCC entity, the Grid Square, the time/date and mode for the contact. Everything we need for the contact to be accepted.
Attach the jpg files to your email or put them in a PDF file and email them to me along with any scans of cards you will also be using.

After your application has been accepted and approved, you will receive a reply email instructing you to make your payment. You may then go online to the AMSAT Online Store and make your payment. Your certificate will then be sent to you using the shipping address you used with the online payment.

Those without scanners may still send the Xerox copies of their QSL cards to the AMSAT Director of Contests and Awards and then pay for the awards online after they are accepted.

To take advantage of this program, you need to scan your QSL cards (back only required if QSO info appears there). Send them as JPG or GIF files attached to your email. You may also put the images in a Word Document or an Adobe PDF document. Email your file to the AMSAT Director of Contests and Awards (presently, Bruce, KK5DO), and indicate which AMSAT Award you are applying for and your name as you want it to appear on the certificate.

After your application has been accepted and approved, you will receive a reply email instructing you to make your payment. You may then go online to the AMSAT Online Store, http://www.amsat.org/wordpress and make your payment. Your certificate will then be sent to you using the shipping address you used with the online payment.

Those without scanners may still send the Xerox copies of their QSL cards to the AMSAT Director of Contests and Awards and then pay for the awards online after they are accepted.



AMSAT Satellite Communicators Club

The first award is the Satellite Communicators’ Club. This award is given to any operator for having made their first contact. To apply for this award you should go to the AMSAT.ORG online store and purchase the award. In the comments please enter your QSO information. After completing your purchase, email the AMSAT Awards Manager, kk5do AT amsat DOT org that you have made the purchase.

AMSAT Satellite Communications Achievement

The next award takes a little bit more work. It is the Oscar Satellite Communications Achievement Award. This is for working 20 contacts on any satellite. A contact is defined as one with a station in another state, DXCC country or Canadian Call Area. Once you have a contact with a station in that area, you must hunt for another. So, if you work 6 canadian stations that are all in Quebec, then you can only submit one of them towards this award. For those that have the RAC CANDADAWARD or ARRL WAS with satellite endorsements, you may submit a copy of your certificate as proof of working the 13 Canadian Call Areas or 50 U.S. States.

All QSOs must be completed from locations separated by no more than 50 miles or 80 kilometers.

State shall mean any state of the United States and the District of Columbia.

The ARRL Worked All States award may be used to credit 50 states towards this award. Use of this award will provide credit for Maryland unless documentation is provided that a QSO with the District of Columbia was used as credit for Maryland.

The 14 Canadian call areas are: VE1 – Nova Scotia, VE2 – Quebec, VE3 – Ontario, VE4 – Manitoba, VE5 – Saskatchewan, VE6 – Alberta, VE7 – British Columbia, VE8 – Northwest Territories, VE9 – New Brunswick, VO1 – Newfoundland, VO2 – Labrador, VY0 – Nunavut, VY1 – Yukon, VY2 – Prince Edward Island. The RAC Canadaward may be used to credit 13 Canadian call areas. Use of this award will provide credit for call area VO1 unless documentation is provided that a QSO with VO2 (Labrador) was used as credit for the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Callsigns need not reflect the call area operated from. The station location will determine the call area credited.

Credits may not be counted for multiple types of entities. For example, a QSO with Alaska counts as an additional state, not as both a state and DXCC entity. Go to Top

AMSAT Century Award

Next there is the Oscar Century Award. This is the same as the other two awards but is for 100 contacts. Qualifications and costs are the same.

Please note that the previous 3 awards are aggregated. Once you have worked your 20, that applies towards your 60 so you only need 40 more contacts. The same is true for the 100, once you get your 60, you only need 40 more for your 100. Go to Top

AMSAT Rover Award

The AMSAT Rover Award

1. The AMSAT Rover award is granted to stations who achieve a combined 25 points using any combination of the following achievements:
  • 1 base point for each grid square activated outside your home grid square using a single-channel FM satellite transponder.
  • 2 base points for each grid square activated outside your home grid square using a linear (SSB/CW) satellite transponder.
  • 3 base points for each grid square activated outside your home grid square using a digital mode satellite transponder. This includes those carrying digital voice such as LO-90. Other examples: ISS packet, NO-84 PSK31
  • 1 additional point added to each grid square score for activating a state, province, or DX entity outside your home entities. Example: Activating 1 grid square on SSB outside your home DX entity = 2 + 1 = 3 points awarded.
  • 5 additional points for advertising your grid operation using an open and public social media account, tagging @amsat or #amsat at least 24 hours in advance of the activation. These additional points are not multiplied for grid boundary operations. If you operate a two or four-way boundary, only 5 additional points are awarded. Advertisement via the AMSAT-BB email listserv or AMSAT News Service (ANS) will count for this bonus.
  • 5 additional points for photographing your grid operation and posting them afterwards using an open and public social media account, tagging @amsat or #amsat. These additional points are not multiplied for grid boundary operations. If you operate a two or four-way boundary, only 5 additional points are awarded.
  • 10 points for activating a grid square while operating Maritime Mobile (/MM.) This will also result in a /MM endorsement on the award. This supersedes any base point calculation based on mode.
  • 15 points for documenting your grid activation in an article published in the AMSAT Journal. The article must document the planning of your activation, equipment used, and general comments on the lessons learned from the operation.
2. For this award, your home grid is defined by the record of your licensing authority. 3. Two and four-way grid boundaries will count as a multiplier to the qualified points based on mode (FM, SSB/CW, or Digital.) Examples: Two-way grid boundary operated on SSB = 2 x 2 = 4 points awarded. Four-way grid boundary operated on FM = 4 x 1 = 4 points awarded. 4. Eligibility for this award is based on portable satellite operating on or after January 1, 2018. 5. To claim an activation of a grid square, you must complete at least one confirmed two-way QSO from that grid square. You may earn points for activating a grid square on each mode defined above, but must complete at least one confirmed two-way QSO on each mode claimed. Once you have claimed an activation of a grid square on each mode, you may not earn any more base points or bonus points for an activation of that grid (unless you activate another state, province, or DXCC entity from the same grid). Either LoTW QSO detail screenshots or scanned QSL cards may be used as confirmation of an activation. The LoTW screenshot or scanned QSL card must indicate your grid square and satellite used (and complete station location information if you wish to claim extra points for activating a grid square outside your home state, province, or DXCC). Screenshots or URLs of appropriate social media postings for bonus points must indicate grid squares and/or entities activated. Note: For the purposes of this award, state means any U. S. state plus the District of Columbia. Province means any Canadian province or territory. DXCC entities are as defined on the ARRL DXCC list. To apply for this award, email your score calculation, details, and required evidence to [email protected]. A scoresheet is in development, but is not required to apply for this award.

AMSAT GridMaster Award

 

AMSAT’s most prestigious award is the GridMaster Award. This award was first introduced by Star Comm Group in 2014. AMSAT thanks Damon Runion, WA4HFN, and Rick Tillman, WA4NVM, for not only sponsoring this award since its inception, but, also, entrusting AMSAT with the honor of carrying on this important award for the benefit of the entire AMSAT community.

The GridMaster award is available to all amateurs worldwide who submit proof with written confirmation of contacts with each of the 488 maidenhead grids located within the contiguous United States of America.

Two-way communication must be established via amateur satellite with each grid. There is no minimum signal report required.
Contacts must be made from the same location, or from locations no two of which are more than 200 kilometers apart. The applicant’s attestation in the award application serves as affirmation of abidance to the distance rule. Individuals may apply for and be granted multiple GridMaster awards, when achieved from another location, which is in a different 200-kilometer circle.

Contacts must be confirmed in writing, preferably in the form of QSL cards or via Logbook of the World (LoTW).

AMSAT reserves the right to inspect original QSL cards from any application in order to maintain the integrity of the program. Failure of the applicant to respond to inspection requests may result in disqualification from the GridMaster program. False statements on GridMaster applications or submission of forged or altered cards may result in disqualification. The decision of the AMSAT Awards Committee, regarding any issue with which it is tasked, is final.

AMSAT Reverse VUCC (VUCC/r) Award

This award was first introduced by the Central States VHF Society and a discussion of the origin appears below in their and now our rules. AMSAT thanks the Central States VHF Society (CSVHFS) for not only sponsoring this award since its inception, but, also, entrusting AMSAT with the honor of carrying on this important award for the benefit of the entire AMSAT community. This award was officially voted on by the CSVHFS and transferred to AMSAT on September 14, 2021. It was announced to the AMSAT membership at the AMSAT General Meeting on October 30, 2021. All submissions from this point on should be sent to the address below for AMSAT to process. 

Reverse VUCC Award Program

Purpose:

This program is to recognize the contribution of rover station operators to the world of grid hunting. Rovers are folks operating while mobile in motion or temporarily parked to give out grids to fixed stations.

Discussion:

Fixed station operators have long appreciated the efforts to which Rovers go to activate rare grids–both in contests and outside of contests. While the fixed station operator is collecting grids usable for earning the ARRL’s VUCC award, the rover or portable station, until now, has been unable to put his work towards a similar award.

The award is called the Reverse VUCC Award. The abbreviation is VUCC/r. It is not an easy award to earn. Those who can meet it’s stringent rules will have earned a cherished honor. For instance, imagine a fixed station collecting grids on 10GHz. If one Rover is the station who activates the appropriate number of grids for him, each operator made identical contacts but who worked harder? The Rover–it is that effort which the CSVHFS wants to recognize and honor.

The award is very similar to the ARRL’s VUCC, but rather than contact a set number of grids on a frequency band, the goal is to make contacts FROM a set number of grids per band. The number of grids coincides with the ARRL award. Certificates will be awarded as well as endorsement stickers. QSL cards are required and will be verified by the program administrator. Awards will be presented with a unique serial number. 

The award came into fruition due to the efforts of Bill Wageman, K5MAT, who wanted to show appreciation for the activity and grids that Rovers provide. Rules and contact information will always be available on the AMSAT website at www.amsat.org . Rovers and portables, take a look at the rules, initiate cards from all those QSO’s from your past, and submit entries for this significant award.

AMSAT took over the issuance of this award from the Central States VHF Society in September, 2021. 

Rules:

Contacts made on January 1, 1983 or later qualify. The rules that govern the ARRL VUCC program are also applicable to VUCC/r with the following exceptions and qualifications:

1.  All contacts must be made operating while away from the home station grid.

2.  2. The applicant must work and confirm contacts made while activating different grids. Confirmation can be QSL cards, QSO listings, LoTW or log extracts.

2a.  Required information: QSL Cards, QSO listings, LoTW and log extracts must include both calls, both grids, mode, date, time, satellite, and band/frequency. The QSLing stations fixed info such as callsign and grid need not be on every line of a QSO listing, or log extract but must be indicated somewhere on the page. Required information may be in any order on a QSO listing or log extract. Cards, listings, LoTW and extracts should additionally have the name of the licensee (person or club); mailing address; operating location information if different from mailing address (address, 6-digit grid); and have a written signature (minimum of first name) of the licensee, trustee, operator, QSL Manager or appropriate person confirming the specifics of the listed contacts. If a QSL card does not natively indicate the grid in which the rover was operating, it should be added in pencil.

2b.  QSL cards, QSO listings, LoTW, or log extracts may be submitted indicating contacts beyond the number required for an award or endorsement level. The program administrator will maintain record of these additional QSOs. Subsequent submissions should refer to QSOs on file when applying for an endorsement.

Robert W. Barbee Jr., W4AMI Satellite Operator Achievement 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. Effective November 01, 2021, contacts can no longer be made on any FM satellite towards this award. FM contacts made prior to November 01, 2021 still qualify. 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

ARRL Awards

There is an award from the ARRL called VHF/UHF Century Club or VUCC and it is for working 100 different grid squares and you can receive it with satellite contacts. Endorsements are for each additional 25 grids worked. You can get information and an application from ARRL by visiting their website at http://www.arrl.org.
Another award from the ARRL is the Worked All States or WAS. For this you must contact a station in each of the 50 states. Here again, you can request an application from ARRL headquarters. There is no 5-Band WAS for Satellite.
WAC or Worked All Continents. This requires contacting a station on each of the 8 continents. This award is also administered by the ARRL. Cards and application must be sent to the ARRL, there is no other way to receive this award.
The award that is the most difficult to attain on satellite is DX Century Club or DXCC. This requires contacting 100 different DXCC countries on satellite and getting QSL cards or LoTW entries for them. Applications are available for the ARRL.
For ARRL, visit http://www.arrl.org The ARRL awards require you to send the actual QSL cards to an ARRL Field Checker. Either I can check your QSL cards for ARRL DXCC, VUCC, ARRL WAS or ARRL 5BWAS or you can find another ARRL Field Checker.
