The Radio Club Satelite is one of the most active and well known radio clubs in Mexico since 1979. It got its name from Ciudad Satelite, a suburb north of Mexico City where it all started.

The RCS radio experiments are unique in Mexico:

* The first balloon launches with VHF and HF beacons ever.

* The first, and so far only, SAREX school contact with the Space Shuttle in the country.

* Its 160 meter multi-op contest station that since 1996 every February gets on CQWW 160m Phone. In 2001 we won First Place World Multi-op and every year we are on the top of the result list.

* IOTA Expeditions as XF2RCS first ever operation from Isla Lobos NA-221. And XF1RCS Isla Venados NA-171.

* Inland expeditions to places like the "Silence Zone" a desert valley in Durango when supposedly radio waves can´t get out.

* IRLP Repeter Linking and the IRLP node 8952.

* Echolink 615623 XE1RCS-R node.

* ARRL Life Member and Indexia member.

* 2 call signs from our repeaters have the call sign in memory of Nellie XE1CI (SK) 147,640 + and Luis XE1L (SK) 147.060 + who were prominent members of the RCS.

Among our members we have internationally well known DXers as Nellie XE1CI (SK), Luis XE1L (SK), Vic XE1VIC, Bill XE1ZW, Samuel XE1ZLW (SK), and Ramon XE1KK to name a few.

Also on the technical arena Jesus XE1JG not only has designed the 8 beverage system and the two phased 1/4 wave vertical antennas for the 160m contest station but has been in charge on most of our recent experiments. Another tech guru on RCS is Enrique XE1E "IRLP and  Echolink 615623 XE1RCS-R node promoter and supporter".

Our prestigious Weekly Bulletin by Joaquin XE1R is transmitted Fridays on local repeaters, IRLP nodes, Echolink nodes and even a midium wave broadcast station. Its also available by email and on our web page. Please visit www.xe1rcs.org.mx for more details.

But what makes RCS strong is the support and energy of its members and our Ex-President Arny XE1ME and Gustavo XE1OGG is the best example of this.


XE1RCS beacons on 28.182 and 50.019 Mhz. now transmiting from new site, Cerro Gordo about 70 kms. northeast from Mexico City. This new site, Cerro Gordo is about 3100 mts. above sea level, near Teotihuacan piramids. The site is owned by Radio Club Satelite.

XE1RCS/B on 28.182 Mhz. has an AR-10 antenna with 8 watts, and on 50.019 has an AR-6 with 50 watts. All the antennas are mounted in a 40 mts. tower with surge protection and battery backup.

Also we added a new experimental beacon that is on 144.295 Mhz. with 5 watts into a F-23 antenna, transmiting CW and FM with ID alternately.
