For Amateur Radio Satellite Operators

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. So if you have 1,000 or more contacts on satellite, send in for this nice award and get one of the low numbers. 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.
