About Raketgruppen IRA

Founded in sept-oct 1965 by Claes Frostell and David Gordon in Djursholm, Sweden. The club was very active during the 1960's and 1970's and it's activities diminished during the 1990's.

The club was specialized in different Potassium- and ammonimperchlorate propellants mixed with PVC, HTPB, Thiokol etc. During the mid 1970's the club was one of the worlds leading amateur rocket motorbuilder!

A couple of other clubs did exist in sweden and here is a list of the most wellknown ones. Today (2004) it's not known of any active rocketclub in Sweden. Modelrocketry is not covered by this website or the clubs interest.
