Welsh Amateur In Space?

Ken Eaton GW1FKY had always dreamed of one day flying in space, now, thanks to the Technical University of Delft, GW1FKY is orbiting the earth.

When the team building the Delfi-C3 satellite, attended the AMSAT-UK International Space Colloquium they made a very generous offer to help boost AMSAT-UK’s satellite building fund.

They decided to allow one Amateur's callsign to fly in space onboard their satellite. This chance to have your call sign fly on the satellite was auctioned at the Annual AMSAT-UK Dinner and there was fierce bidding to win this privilege.

Ken Eaton GW1FKY was the winner with a bid that will greatly boost the satellite building fund and his call sign was put into Delfi-C3 and has now been launched into Earth orbit.
