DRAFT Policy on Amateur Satellites

Date : 21 / 11 / 2020
Author : Peter Clee - VK8ZZ

The Wireless Institute of Australia has received a number of requests to support cubesat projects who wish to utilise amateur radio frequencies for operations.

Accordingly the WIA have prepared a policy document to deal with such applications.

The purpose of this document is to provide some guidance to the WIA on making decisions when approached by organisations seeking WIA support or endorsement for their satellite mission and agreement for the use of amateur service frequency allocations for operation of satellites and associated ground control stations.

This draft policy is published to seek feedback from the Amateur Radio community.

The Board of the WIA thank Dale VK1DSH for his contribution to this draft policy.

Submissions close on 31 December 2020 and can be made by email to
