Creation of AMSAT-Francophone

AMSAT-Francophone Logo

A new amateur radio satellite organisation, AMSAT-Francophone, was formed in December.

Following the disappearance of AMSAT-France a few months ago, some of the members who originally created AMSAT-France 16 years ago, thought it was still necessary to have a structure for the French amateur space activities and have created AMSAT-Francophone.

Among its aims are:

– Development of amateur satellites, technology and systems useful for the construction and / or use of amateur satellites

– Participation in national and international collaborations on non-commercial projects in space,
