    OSCAR Satellite QSO Party 1 Aug - 22 Sept

    Posted: 20 Jul 2020 07:56 AM PDT https://amsat-uk.org/2020/07/20/oscar-satellite-qso-party/

    The objective of the AMSAT-UK OSCAR Satellite QSO Party is to encourage all radio amateurs around the world to get on the air and make contacts via satellites during northern hemisphere summer. We would like to attract both seasoned die-hard operators as well as all newcomers who are just getting involved.

    While points are given per QSO this isn’t a contest, but we hope it will encourage people to get on the air and enjoy the excitement of making
    contacts through satellites.

    The AMSAT-UK OSCAR Satellite QSO Party will be supported by an online leaderboard which will be available from the start of the event which runs
    from 00:00 GMT on 1st August until 23:59 GMT on 22nd September.

    Prizes will be awarded to those from first to thirteenth place and are open
    to both AMSAT-UK and non-members around the world.

    ● First Place £250 Amazon Voucher

    ● Second Place £150 Amazon Voucher

    ● Third Place £50 Amazon Voucher

    ● Fourth to Thirteenth Place One Year AMSAT-UK Membership
