WD9EWK - via satellite (and space stations)
Updated 25 October 2009
I have always been interested in space exploration. In the past decade or
so, I have also been interested in space-related aspects of my ham radio
hobby. Amateur radio operators have launched
dozens of satellites since 1961, and have operated
from space since 1983 on USA space shuttles and from the Russian Mir
station and the International Space Station. There is much more
information on amateur radio in space at the following sites:
- AMSAT (Radio Amateur
Satellite Corporation - the largest amateur radio organization focused on
satellites and operating in space)
OSCAR (California group that made the first amateur radio satellite, and
continues to support this part of amateur radio)
In the past several years, I have made two-way radio contacts with other
stations in North America using amateur radio satellites, and I have made
contacts with both the Mir and International Space Station.
Statistics on WD9EWK's satellite operating
Please view my text file with WD9EWK's statistics
for satellite/ISS contacts.
I am in the process of redoing my satellite-related web pages.
Please be patient, as I take a little time to put more - and, hopefully,
better - information related to this part of amateur radio on my web
Please feel free to contact me if you have any
comments or questions about me or my web pages.
