surprisingly advanced for that time. They successfully tested liquid propellant
motors, but not much is written about them. Launched a rocket to 3.7 km altitude
in mid 1960. The swedish monthly magazine (Teknikens
Värld) wrote about the club in the mid 1960's.
Swedish Rocket Society - SRS
This club launched rockets with mail onboard. These letters
was very attrachtive by stampcollectors. One of the rockets was displayed at
swedish postmuseum in Stockholm. The club also launched a rocket with mail from
Sweden to Norway in 1969, but it crashed on the mountain after a parachutefailure. The
motors itself was rather simple and zinc-sulphur was mostly used (accordning to
our knowledge). Link to ten lines of text in
postmuseum PDF-file, page 28 bottom

launching rockets with mail onboard. One rocket failed to be launched from
