Live status of amateur satellites

oscar_sat_status

Many radio amateurs find it difficult to find the real-time operational status of amateur satellites. The AMSAT website is not very good at showing real-time status in my personal opinion. If you have been looking for a way of finding the status of the birds like me, head over to http://oscar.dcarr.org/ for a real-time status based on thousands of reports from radio amateurs all over the world.

Currently these satellites are active with transponders (FM / SSB / CW) : AO-7 (launched in the seventies!), AO-27, FO-29, SO-50, VO52
