Hi Frank,

Thanks for clarifying my QSL options, and sorry about the confusion on the ARISS involvement.  I had assumed that his activities were driven by the contract he had with the Russian tourist thing (I forget the organization name).  

Richard's flight was a major event, and all involved should be proud of what was accomplished.

Thanks again,

Greg KO6TH
