Satellite

Hams In Space
This is the web site where you can learn all about getting the Hams In Space Sattellite Radio Team to give a presentation on FM Amateur Radio Satellites at your Amateur Radio Club, Hamfest, or Event!

Amateur Radio Satellites
This web site was created by Allen Mattis, N5AFV of Houston, Texas. Not only does this site contain many other links and resources, Allen has also done a lot of study, trial and error, and observations on different antennas and antenna configurations for working amateur radio satellites. I found a lot of useful information here!

AMSAT.ORG is the proverbial “mother-ship” for Amateur Radio Satellite. The Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (as AMSAT is officially known) was first formed in the District of Columbia in 1969 as an educational organization. Its goal was to foster Amateur Radio's participation in space research and communication. AMSAT was founded to continue the efforts, begun in 1961, by Project Oscar.

http://work-sat.com
Also known as worksatellites.com is the location dedicated to the FM Amateur Radio Satellites, maintained by Clint Bradford - K6LCS, the AMSAT Area Coordinator for Southern California. This site contains everything any ham operator needs to know to work the “FM Birds” in no time!

QRP / Low Power

HF Activity

OMISS, or “Old Man International Sideband Society,” has been operating list-type awards nets on the General Amateur bands since 1981. Want to get your WAS quickly? This is a great place to get it done. Do you like to work lots of stations for unique awards? We have several challenging awards to work for, each with an attractive certificate to hang on your wall. Do you like contesting? We hold an annual QSO Party and invite the whole Amateur community

Ten-Ten International Net, or 10-10 for short, is an organization of amateur radio operators dedicated to maintaining high levels of amateur radio communications on the 10-meter amateur band (28.0-29.7 MHz). Established in 1962, 10-10 has grown continuously since that day, with some ups and downs according to the numbers of sunspots and the openness of the band. As you read this, the number of 10-10 numbers issued to members is over 75,000. 10-10 would welcome your membership in the organization if you have an amateur radio license with 10-meter privileges. 10-10 offers the 10-meter enthusiast the opportunity to share in a wide variety of activities internationally, not the least of which is meeting new and old friends. By keeping the band active through participation in 10-10 nets, QSO parties, and certificate collection, 10-10 offers both satisfaction and challenges, while promoting learning and courteous operating practices. The combination of on-the-air activities, awards, a bi-annual convention, and the 10-10 News creates an unusually strong bond among 10-10 members.
