AMSAT operates the Internet host AMSAT.ORG to provide for efficient communications between people interested in the amateur satellite program. At this time the following services are provided: Mailing List services
- The primary discussion list is AMSAT-BB which serves as an exchange for information about satellites, the ISS, operating techniques, and information in general. A second list, SAREX (Shuttle Amateur Radio Experiments) currently serves primarily for information about ARISS (Amateur Radio on the International Space Station) school contacts and will be discontinued on November 1st, 2015. At that time, all new postings will be closed, and the notices and discussions will be folded into the AMSAT-BB list. The archives will remain available.
- You can subscribe to a number of mailing lists to receive information relating to the amateur space program. These lists are intended to encourage the free, open, and timely exchange of ideas and information. However, contributors are expected to be respectful toward others and their viewpoints. See our AMSAT Acceptable Use Policy for guidelines on maintaining a civil discourse. Please keep in mind that our public lists are read by people and organizations worldwide, and postings are often picked up and distributed by the other amateur news media.
- In addition to the mailing lists messages are archived on to the web site. If you unsubscribe from the mailing list and rely exclusively on the web pages, the system will no longer recognize you as a subscriber. That means if you post a message to the list, it will be held for manual review before it goes out.
