eSatellite Award

eSatellite AwardThe eSatellite eAward has been established to provide an incentive to Amateur Radio operators around the world to make contact with other radio amateurs via as many Satellites and modes as possible. It is an award uniquely designed for satellites in that it does not reward making contacts in countries or states or provinces, but rather rewards amateurs for learning how to track and communicate through multiple satellites and different modes on these satellites. As each new satellite is launched, it becomes a potential source for one or more new credits. Thus, there is no limit to the total credits a person can earn under this eAward.
