JY6JY is a dedicated ground station to be used for communication with JY1-SAT; Jordan’s first CubeSat. All commands to JY1-SAT will be uplinked from this ground station.

The call sign JY6JY is registered to the Office of HRH Crown Prince Hussein bin Abdullah II of Jordan.

HRH’s support for this project comes as part of a broader vision for capacity building for Jordanian youth, particularly in STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

The choice of the call-sign (JY1-SAT) comes as a tribute to His Majesty the Late King Hussein of Jordan (JY1), the founding father of HAM Radio in Jordan and the Arab world. The mission and payload of JY1-SAT are consistent with its name, meaning that they will be both HAM radio oriented. JY1-SAT will carry a linear inverting transponder for radio amateurs around the world to operate, it will also broadcast SSTV images periodically, and the content of these images will reflect the Jordanian culture and its historical heritage. The project also aims to build up space capability related to CubeSat technology in Jordan.

The multidisciplinary team consists of engineering students hailing from various Jordanian universities who will be responsible for building JY1-SAT and operating the ground station. The Royal Jordanian Radio Amateur Society (RJRAS) is a key partner in the project, by contributing the necessary HAM Radio expertise, equipment in support of the mission.


JY1-SAT CubeSat project started early 2015 supported by the Crown Prince Foundation (CPF) and Masar Initiative

In August 2016 the ROYAL JORDANIAN RADIO AMATEURS SOCIETY RJRAS was granted the responsibility to host the project, the team was reallocated to RJRAS HQ where intensive training covering a wide spectrum, staring with Ham Radio through all necessary technical knowledge and expertise related to the project.

Within the short period of 8 weeks the first CubeSat prototype was designed and assembled by RJRAS members including Hardware, Software, Radio, Power supply, Final RF stage, Onboard Computer, Modem etc…….   producing a fully operational module, the first prototype was in place as a stepping stone for the next model with more sophisticated frame and PCBs

The second Fully working prototype (Engineering Module) with CNC machined frame, a multilayer PCB was produced in early 2017 . This prototype resembling 100% the “Real” CubeSat in shape, dimensions and functionality.

RJRAS members JY5IB Nart Tahamouqa and JY4CI Rafiq Farmawi contrebuted emenslly as Advisers in this project
