I am ready to issue AMSAT Satellite Communications Achievement Award 
number 490 today. What I am going to do so that a group of people have 
the opportunity of receiving number 500 is this....

The next 20 that submit for this award (including the one I just 
received) will be stacked in the order that they were submitted. After 
all 20 are here (numbers 490-509) I will have Mahana, W5BTS, select one 
of the call signs out of a hat. That person will receive certificate 
number 500. Everyone else will then get their certificate in the order 
they submitted. (Hmmmm... Mahana never submitted for this award, could 
she pull her own call?)

The lucky operator could be you. But only if you submit an application 
for the AMSAT Satellite Communications Achievement Award. This award is 
available to hams worldwide. You do not need to be a member of AMSAT. 
Rules for the award can be found at the AMSAT http://www.amsat.org
Click on Contests and Awards in the left margin.

Scanned QSL cards emailed to me is the best way to submit for the award. 
JPG files are preferred. PDF and DOC files are fine just larger in size.

This might take a month or two depending on how quickly the submissions 
arrive so be patient as your certificate will not mail until the last 
one is received. I will let you know via email that I have received your 
submission. I will let everyone know when the 20 entries have been 
received and you will have no more than 3 days from then to make payment 
for the award at the AMSAT online store (payment may be made earlier if 
you desire). Lucky number 500 will be issued and all certificates will 
go in the mail.
