It's time for another College Satellite night!  Expect to hear many Oscar
capable NA college club stations on the air Thursday evening Oct. 1st-2nd
(NA local times) from 22:00 UTC to 0500 UTC for this special event.


College clubs are getting priority on the QRP AO-51 repeater that night
(uplink: 145.880 MHz FM. downlink: 435.150 MHz FM).  Please work each
college station but afford them the ability to take calls and make as many
QSOs as possible.


Club stations will also be on other birds so make as many contacts if you
can, on each bird. We have encouraged college stations to QSL all the
stations they work during the event as we (either through AMSAT or a college
group) are planning on creating an award for working college club stations
on satellite.  


Make sure to e-mail or call as many hams that you know associated with
college ham radio clubs so that they will know about this special event and
get on the air.usage and NA-wide involvement is important. While we are
focusing on North American activity let me know of interest and
participation from other parts of the globe, e-mail me off-list at
