It’s meant to encourage engaging with the great group of satellite
operators on social media. Too often operators find out about an activation
of a grid they need after the activation is already complete. AMSAT would
like to encourage operators try their hand at roving to new grids and also
to announce their activities to the community and then document their
experiences roving to new grids in the AMSAT Journal.

There are multiple ways to earn this award. Social media usage and Journal
articles are ways to enhance and share the experience with others, but are
not mandatory.
