You are cordially invited to participate in Straight Key Night on OSCAR 
2015, sponsored by AMSAT for radio amateurs throughout the world.

This year's event is being held in memory of Captain Charles Dorian, W3JPT, 
who passed away in 2014, aged 92.  Chuck, who had held many senior 
positions in the U.S. Coast Guard, was one of AMSAT's earliest members and served as 
secretary of  the Board of Directors.

Participation in AMSAT SKN on OSCAR is easy and fun.  Just operate CW, 
using a straight key or non-electronic "bug," through any amateur satellite 
between 0000 and 2400 UTC on January 1, 2015.  There is no need to send in a 
log, but all participants are asked to nominate someone they worked for "Best 
Fist."  Your nominee need not have the best fist of those you heard, only of 
those you worked.  Send your nomination to w2rs at amsat.org.  A list of "Best 
Fist" nominees will be published in early February.
