Issue 212 of the AMSAT-UK amateur radio satellite publication OSCAR News was released on December 9, 2015. E-members can download it via the AMSAT-UK website. The paper edition is usually posted 2-3 weeks after publication of the electronic issue.

Upcoming ARISS Commemorative SSTV Event mid to late December 
On November 13, 2000 the crew conducted their first ham radio contacts on ISS and on December 21, 2000 ARISS conducted their first school contact with the Burbank School in Burbank, Illinois.
An SSTV commemoration of these historic events is tentatively planned for mid to late December. It is possible that the transmission mode will be P120 instead of the P180 mode used in the past. This would allow for more pictures to be transmitted per pass.
