Info about AMSAT-SM
AMSAT-SM is the Swedish section of AMSAT with aprox 220 members (2018). One of our objectives is to inform Swedish hams about the fun with amateur satellites! Not many SM hams are active via satellite at the moment. With the help from our swedish webpage and HF-net we hope that more swedish hams should be using amateur satellites.
The AMSAT-SM annual meeting is held every spring. Some weeks on Sundays we have a HF-net on 80 meters with lots of news about satellites and space.
In november 2017 AMSAT-SM donated $ 285 USD to the ARISS project for amateur radio on ISS.
In april 2015 AMSAT-SM donated $ 1600 USD for the FOX satellite project. ”AMSAT-SM believe that FOX project is very important to continue to develop amateur radio on board satellites. We therefore hope that our contribution can help the FOX satellites up in space.”

AMSAT-SM and ARISS Europe
AMSAT-SM is a member of ARISS Europe for coordination and support of ARISS contacts.
AMSAT-SM is using the Internet homepage for members information and news. You can find articles, news, links and lots of more information about satellites.

- FAQ and technical page
- New amateur satellites update
- Latest telemetry from several microsats
- A news service on the homepage called e-Journal
- Active on Twitter, Facebook and Youtube. See links on right frame on webpage.

A compendia of articles previously published in Journal (only in Swedish) can be downloaded from our homepage for free. This has been a success!
AMSAT-SM Journal was the name of our newsletter sent out to our members. The old name was ”AMSAT-SM INFO”. Most of the articles was in Swedish. Unfortunately, at this moment the Journal is in ”sleep mode” since the activity of AMSAT-SM is very low and the last issue was published in 2010.
