Useful Links and Resources

For Amateur Radio Satellite


This is the web site of Clint Bradford, K6LCS who is the AMSAT Coordinator for Southern California. He has an outstanding site, containing Satellite Schedules, Antenna Projects, Advice, and an outstanding blog. This is a must have on the favorites list for any satellite aficionado!

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!

A Resource for Working Amateur Radio Satellite

This is the site of Kansas City’s own Ron Nutter, KA4KYI, who is also one of AMSAT’s Area Coordinators for Missouri. Ron provides some very good, basic advice for the new, as well as advanced satellite operator.


The Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation or AMSAT is the mother-ship for all who are interested in Amateur Radio Satellites. Everything you need is right here!
