Another interesting event is to have either CW or SSB on satellites with the exchange being your grid square and AMSAT member number. Something like this was suggested in one of the AMSAT board of directors meeting awhile ago. Should you not have a AMSAT member number, might I suggest you get one. Support is critical, rocket science isn't cheap.
