Kennedy Space Center Amateur Radio Club - N1KSC
Kennedy Space Center Amateur Radio Club - N1KSC

About Us

The KSC Amateur Radio Club encourages the unity, fellowship, and activities of the amateur radio community of Kennedy Space Center (KSC) and Eastern Range (ER) sites.


We strive to promote the positive character and benefits of amateur radio to the employees of KSC and the local community.


The Club creates a direct benefit to KSC by providing opportunities to develop radio communication skills and supporting Center operations.


Membership is open to all badged employees at Kennedy Space Center and Eastern Range sites, as well as retired NASA civil service.  These members are routinely badged into KSC and therefore have access to club activities and facilities on-Center.


The immediate families of those eligible above, to retired KSC contractors, and those who were eligible members in good standing while formerly employed at KSC and ER may also join.  These members are not routinely badged into KSC and consequently do not have access to club activities and facilities on-Center, but may otherwise participate in any club activities not requiring access to KSC.
