We are very proud to inform you that OSCAR number has been given to OrigamiSat-1 by AMSAT (Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation).

It is FO-98 (Fuji-OSCAR 98).

Please note that “OSCAR” (Orbiting Satellite Carrying Amateur Radio) is the name of the world-first Amateur Radio satellite, launched in 1961; and “Fuji” is the first Amateur Radio satellite in Japan, launched in 1986.

We are thrilled to participate in the great history of Amateur Radio satellites.
