My First Award

Yes, in recognition for my first Amateur Radio Satellite contact, AMSAT gave me an award.  Well, it cost me a couple of bucks, but I got it.

Yes, a few dollars (yes, it helps support the great work of the AMSAT volunteer workers to spread the word, and help in the advancement of Amateur Satellite knowledge), and you too can have this nice certificate sent to you.  It is a fun way to commemorate your first “bird” contact.
