After 30 years in the same location, AMSAT-NA is moving to a new office. The office will be closed Friday, 25 April, and will reopen Friday, 2 May. During the move, our e-mail will be operational, however responses will be delayed. Purchases through the AMSAT Store may be made normally, but they will not be processed until the move is completed.
Our new street address will be:
Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (AMSAT-NA)
10605 Concord St, #304
Kensington, MD 20895
For those visiting, we are about 5 miles north of the old office, outside I-495, the Capital Beltway.
During the move, we are changing some phone numbers. After the new office opens, the new numbers will be:
From the US call toll free: (888) 322-6728 (Unchanged)
From all other locations call: (301) 822-4376
FAX: (301) 822-4371
The deterioration of the current building has been discussed in the AMSAT Journal Apogee View. Martha and the rest of the office team have gone to great lengths to minimize disruptions under very trying, uncomfortable, and sometimes unsafe circumstances in the old office. Finally, the county authorities ordered the building closed.
It will take some time to get the new office fully up and running. However, the improvements in building facilities and especially safety will be worth it. If you are in the area after the move, give us a call, and come by and visit.
