Can't speak to the COSMOS award, but the other two you mentioned
are still available.  The South African award is now handled by AMSAT-NA:


JARL issues the Fuji award, at:


I was able to have a JARL card checker take my application and fee
payment for the award at Dayton last year.  JARL didn't have any of
those certificates at Dayton, so JARL mailed the certificate to me a
couple of weeks later.  A nice certificate.

One of these days, I'll get around to writing out my application for a
satellite VUCC.  I've got at least 350 grids confirmed at home, and have
not used my free time to deal with that application.  More time for radio
and writing out QSL cards.
