Although "Space Communicators Club" sounds like a great name, how confusing might this be with the "AMSAT Communicators Club" award? Maybe we (AMSAT) could offer the "AMSAT Communicators Club" award when the participating school makes their first contact with their satellite. 

Just thinking out loud.

Hi Bruce and the bb,

Re: Amsat-UK FUNcube

What a great name  "Space Communicators Club"

With potential worldwide participation by schools in the telemetry and 
physiscs experiments I hope that amsat-uk can come up with a receiver that 
can be mass produced and  achive an easily affordable unit for schools.
