haven't heard much on this list for a while, so I thought you all needed some spam. ;-)  This is for OSCAR enthusiasts or wannabes...

It’s time for another College Satellite night!  I hope to hear all Oscar capable college club stations on the air Thursday evening Oct. 1st (local time) from 22:00 UTC to 0500 UTC for this special event.

 Make sure you get on the second AO-51 repeater (uplink: 145.880 MHz FM. downlink: 435.150 MHz FM) made available for our special use. Also make sure to e-mail or call as many ham radio clubs at other schools so that they will know about these special events and get on the air…usage and country-wide involvement is important. 

From 22:00 UTC to 05:00 UTC also get on as many of the birds and make as many contacts if you can, identifying your contacts as part of a college night effort.  Other birds include SO50, AO7, VO52, and they should all have passes during that time.  Contact friends at other university clubs and get them to join in. 

Please QSL all the stations you work as we are planning on creating an award for working college club stations on satellite.  This makes for a great public image for your school and rewards the stations for allowing us coordinated use of such valuable time on the birds.   Make sure to work each other as well and we will also create a special award for college clubs that work and confirm the most other club stations on the birds!
