AMSAT-UK represents the amateur satellite community in the UK whose members not only operate amateur satellites but also help to design, build and fund them. At EMF-2022 we will be demonstrating various aspects of the hobby including low earth orbiting and geostationary satellite communications and possibly deep space reception.

BATC The British Amateur Television Club (BATC) actively promotes the hobby of Amateur Television and covers all aspects of Television from making and editing programmes to transmitting television on the amateur radio bands. During EMF Camp, presentations will be given on the subjects, in addition to making video contacts via the QO-100 geostationary satellite.

GB4EMF We will be using this Amateur Radio Special Event callsign during EMF for all contacts.


If you want your name added to the list but don't want to edit the wiki, give Dave a shout. On-site coordination: 144.750MHz, 432.750MHz, bring an H/T!
