First FUNcube 73 on 73 Award issued

Paul Stoetzer N8HM reports the first FUNcube-1 (AO-73) 73 on 73 Award has been issued to Wyatt Dirks AC0RA

The award aims to promote activity on AO-73 satellite. The requirements are straight-forward:

1. Work 73 unique stations on AO-73.

2. Contacts must be made on or after September 1, 2014.

3. There are no geographic restrictions on your operating location.

Congratulations to Wyatt Dirks, AC0RA, for claiming 73 on 73 Award #1. He has submitted a list with a total of 74 unique calls worked on AO-73 since September 1.

It’s been great to hear all the activity on the satellite over the last few weeks. I look forward to hearing and working many more stations, especially after the end of Daylight Saving Time makes the evening passes a bit earlier!

73,

Paul Stoetzer, N8HM
