Amateur Satellites


Operational Amateur Satellites

At present, Australian and New Zealand operators most commonly use the following OSCAR satellites.
  • AO7 - SSB
  • FO-29 - SSB - Over JA / VK Xmas 2011.
  • SO50 – FM
  • VO52 – SSB

The above satellites are in daily use over our region, however there are many other birds in the amateur service. For a full listing of working satellites, see the sat status page on the AMSAT-NA site. Please be aware that not all of the satellites listed on the AMSAT-NA sat status page are active or usable when positioned over our region.

Another useful site to those who are planning to use or who are currently working AO51, is the AO51 monthly schedule page.
