AMSAT is an acronym for “Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation”. AMSAT is a non-profit, membership organization dedicated to supporting amateur radio operators who wish to use satellites to communicate. AMSAT was founded in 1969 by a group of amateur radio operators who were interested in building and operating their own satellites.
Today, AMSAT has more than 5,000 members in over 50 countries around the world. AMSAT’s primary focus is on the development and operation of satellites that use amateur radio frequency bands. These satellites are commonly known as “ham Radio Satellites” or “AMSAT Satellites”. In addition to satellite development and operations, AMSAT also engages in public outreach, education, and emergency communications.
