AMSAT is a worldwide group of Amateur Radio Operators who share a common interest in building, launching and communicating with each other through non-commercial Amateur Radio satellites.
AMSAT-VK is a group of Australian Amateur Radio Operators who also share the same common interest in building, launching and communicating with each other through non-commercial Amateur Radio satellites.
Many of our members also have an interest in other space based communications, including listening to and communicating with the International Space Station, Earth-Moon-Earth (EME), monitoring weather (WX) satellites and other spacecraft.
AMSAT-VK is the primary point of contact for those interested in becoming involved in amateur radio satellite operations. If you are interested in learning more about satellite operations or just wish to become a member of AMSAT-VK, click on the membership link on the sidebar to the left.
The members of AMSAT-VK participate in a national net, which utilises a network of repeaters, HF, Echolink and IRLP nodes located throughout Australia, New Zealand and the US. For further information see the National Net link on the sidebar.
AMSAT-VK also organises face-to-face meetings of our members from time-to-time. We are also active in promoting the use of the amateur satellites and encourage our members to become involved in the development, launch and operations of amateur satellites.
AMSAT-VK operates entirely via a Yahoo Group and this pointer website.
