AbstractSince the advent of the space age, amateur radio operators and leisure time scientists have been involved in designing and building sophisticated spacecraft to be used for non-profit, educational and scientific communication purposes. The author describes the development of a series of communication satellites known as OSCAR (Orbiting Satellite Carrying Amateur Radio), the first of which was launched "piggyback" in 1961.
