Breaking News – 73 on 73 Award

Via AMSAT-BB,, and forums:

I am pleased to announce that I will be sponsoring a new award to promote
activity on AO-73 (FUNcube-1). The requirements for this award are simple:

1. Work 73 unique stations on AO-73.
2. Contacts must be made on or after September 1, 2014.
3. There are no geographic restrictions on your operating location.

There will be no cost for this award (donations to AMSAT-UK and AMSAT-NA’s
Fox program are encouraged though). No QSLs are required. When you complete
the requirements, email your log extract including the callsign of each
station worked, UTC, and date to n8hm at as well as the address where
you’d like the award certificate sent.

Enjoy AO-73’s transponder!


Paul Stoetzer, N8HM
Washington, DC

I hope that some of my readers will not only take up the challenge but make donations to AMSAT-UK or AMSAT-NA (preferably both) to support ongoing and future satellite projects.
