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 Awards.
