The purpose of the association is:

To support the range of topics around "Citizen Science for Space & Wireless Communication":

  • Developing and experimenting with new technologies,
  • Implementation of project ideas including self-build prototypes,
  • collect and present information on current developments, projects and activities

In particular:

  • The scientific research and project development of new technologies related to
    • High frequency transmission of information and speech
    • the training and further education of technicians and radio amateurs
    • The development and support of satellites and satellite techniques with and for the Amateur Radio Service.
    • as well as raising funding and public relations.

The target groups of these pages will be kept very broad.

There will be:

  • Students from technical schools and HTL's,
  • Students from technical colleges and universities,
  • and all those interested in radio technology for the transmission of voice and data in the terrestrial and orbital environment


The pages are intended both to provide an introduction to various topics and to provide detailed accompanying information on projects.
