Hi Bill and all,

Here is the information you asked about.  The day after it was
posted, Tim, N3TL and I worked a contact and mailed the QSO
information to the address below.  We haven't heard anything
since or received any mail.  We feel sure we made the first 50
group, but no way of knowing at this time.  I hope this helps.

Nitin, VU3TYG announced AMSAT India will issue a certificate for
Amateur Radio operators who establish two way contact thru VO-52
between January 26, 2009 until May 5, 2009.

The first fifty certificates have been sponsored by a well-wisher
which includes postage. After the 50 certificates have been issued
a fee will apply. AMSAT India will announce these details when the
information is available.

Please send your QSL card containing the details of the QSO on VO-52
AMSAT India at the following address:

AMSAT India (Regd.)
No. 201, 2nd Main Road,
Mahalakshmi Layout,

Also include your mailing address where you would like to have the
certificate sent to.

[ANS thanks Nitin, VU3TYG for the above information]
