Today, December 12 marks the 17th anniversary of the beginning of the MIR SSTV Station which was active in sending pictures over a period of about 2 years and 4 months. Hundreds of excellent and exciting pictures were received worldwide. For those interested in this historical event and background, the publication Amateur Television Quarterly (ATVQ) Spring 2015 issue has an article “How Did Mir SSTV come into Existence?” Back issue copies of ATVQ and cyber copies of the article are available via WA6SVT at aol.com.
