ANDE (NO-61) will de-orbit somewhere in the next days.
We do not know exactly, but that's the challenge and the fun !
For these last weeks a special event is launched, and everyone
is invited to participate !
A special ANDE de-Orbit AWARD can be obtained by everyone that makes
QSOs via ANDE or receives telemetry during its final 10 days in space.
On the AWARD your callsign and achievements will be mentioned:
ANDE APRS QSOs
1 point for each 2 way APRS QSO over ANDE in its last 10 days of life.

In total 55 Telemetry points can be achieved, all to be scored in the last 10 days.
Bob, WB4APR, will set the official date/time of de-orbit.
The 10 days before that date then count for the calculation
of your achievements....
... but you do not know before that when those days will be :-)
To obtain the award participates should, within 2 weeks after ANDE de-orbits,
email his/her own score + proof (the packets).
Have fun - and keep ANDE busy in its final exciting day(s) in space !
