Membership

  Becoming a member of AMSAT-VK

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. Some of our members also have an interest in space based communications, including communicating and monitoring the International Space Station, weather (WX) satellites, and other spacecraft.

We welcome all who are interested in discussing and exploring this fascinating branch of amateur radio.

You may become a member of AMSAT-VK simply by signing up to the Yahoo group. - The AMSAT-VK Group. There are no ongoing membership fees or costs to be a member of AMSAT-VK.

There are only a few ground rules which apply to the AMSAT-VK Group.
 
Basic Rules. 
  1. All messages posted must comply with Yahoo Groups rules.
