I've missed some of the earlier posts on this but there is only one meaning for OSCAR given on the AMSAT-NA website so at the risk of repeating what someone may have already pointed out: 

OSCAR stands for "Orbiting Satellite Carrying Amateur Radio" 

Intro to sats: http://www.amsat.org/amsat-new/information/faqs/Intro_sats.pdf 
OSCAR Numbers Policy: http://www.amsat.org/amsat/amsat-na/oscar.html 

The Project Oscar website at http://www.projectoscar.net/ 
also gives the same definition.
