Paul Stoetzer N8HM is sponsoring an award for contacts made via the AO-73 (FUNcube-1) amateur radio satellite.
The award aims to promote activity on AO-73. The requirements are straight-forward:
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 QSL cards are required. When you complete the requirements, email your log extract including the callsign of each station worked, time GMT, and date to firstname.lastname@example.org as well as the address where you’d like the award certificate sent.
Enjoy AO-73’s transponder!
