The Extraordinary History of Amateur Radio Satellites !!

The Extraordinary History of Amateur Radio Satellites .
Here's a startling fact — more than 73 Amateur Radio satellites have been launched over four decades. The number is astonishing because these sophisticated and ground breaking spacecraft are little known outside the ham radio fraternity.
In fact, private groups of Amateur Radio operators around the globe have built and sent dozens and dozens of Amateur Radio communications and science satellites to orbit since the first, OSCAR-1, was launched on December 12, 1961.
