Yes Luc ... the first satellite contact made will earn that ARRL entry the 100-point bonus for a satellite contact.
It's also important to note that ARRL and AMSAT are only scoring one contact each on AO-27 and SO-50. AMSAT Field Day rules permit one contact each on each of the active transponders on AO-51. If the ISS is configured to be active both in FM voice and packet, AMSAT also will score one voice contact and one completed two-way packet contact.
ARRL Field Day rules stipulate only one contact per FM satellite will score.
I have sent you the 2009 AMSAT Field Day rules off the BB. I hope that proves helpful.
Best of luck to all this Field Day - and please listen for W4G on all of the satellites!
Tim - N3TL (operating the W4G satellite station for Field Day)
