    The Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (as AMSAT is officially known) was first formed in the District of Columbia in 1969. Its goal was to foster Amateur Radio’s participation in space research and communication.

    For many decades within the Irish amateur radio community, there were various attempts made by teams to introduce some AMSAT-related activities into the country. Early in 2019, another attempt at this multi-phase process was begun.

    Today we are delighted to report the successful completion of establishing AMSAT Ireland. We hereby invite all amateur radio operators and other interested parties to join/liaise with our organisation.

    AMSAT Ireland has been granted by ComReg the callsign EI2SAT. We welcome all amateur radio operators worldwide to listen out for our callsign on the air going forward into the future.

    There's not really a lot of information on the website and the contact email is a Gmail address. I did email for more info but never heard anything back. Is this a membership based organization that is seeking to produce spacecraft or more of just a club for amateur radio operators that enjoy the satellite niche of the hobby? The website really leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to providing any information to radio amateurs about the organization.

    AMSAT Ireland was setup as an amateur radio club within Ireland for the provision of amateur services relating to space communication.

    We look forward to working on many projects with other AMSAT organisations around the world going forward into the near future.
