It looks like the ARRL agreed with my request to modify their Field Day rules to mirror our own on FM satellite QSOs.
7.3.7. Satellite QSO: 100 bonus points for successfully completing at least one QSO via an amateur radio satellite during the Field Day period. "General Rules for All ARRL Contests" (Rule 3.7.2.), (the no-repeater QSO stipulation) is waived for satellite QSOs. Groups are allowed one dedicated satellite transmitter station without increasing their entry category. Satellite QSOs also count for regular QSO credit. Show them listed separately on the summary sheet as a separate "band." You do not receive an additional bonus for contacting different satellites, though the additional QSOs may be counted for QSO credit unless prohibited under Rule 188.8.131.52. The QSO must be Earth-Satellite-Earth in nature. Available to Classes A, B, and F.
184.108.40.206 Stations are limited to one (1) completed QSO on any single channel FM satellite.
Thank you to the ARRL and the Contest Advisory Committee for your cooperation, and see you on the satellites on Field Day.
