AMSAT is a group of radio hobbyists that build and launch satellites that  provide communications and carry experiments for ham radio users and space enthusiasts around the world. Our satellites are completely open for anyone to listen and any licensed ham to transmit through. We are celebrating our 45th year of making and keeing ham radio in space.

AMSAT is excited to announce a launch opportunity for the Fox-1C Cubesat. AMSAT has teamed with Spaceflight Inc. for integration and launch utilizing Spaceflight’s SHERPA system to a sun-synchronous orbit in the third quarter of 2015.

Fox-1C is the third of four Fox-1 series satellites under development, with Fox-1A and RadFXsat/Fox-1B launching through the NASA ELANA program. Fox-1C will carry an FM repeater system for amateur radio use by radio hams and listeners worldwide, and has available payload space for educational and non-profit experiment boards. Further details on the satellite and launch will be made available as soon as released.

AMSAT has an immediate need to raise funds to cover both the launch contract and additional materials for construction and testing for Fox-1C. Please help us to continue to keep amateur radio in space. AMSAT Fox-1C at www.amsat.org
