Hi JoAnne

Thank you, I'd forgotten all about that.  For some reason I was expecting
some information on what proof was required for contacts made via the
various ISS modes other than with the ISS itself or SSTV reception.

Looks like I better type it up and send it off in the hope that it's not too

Thanks again.

Below is what ARISS had posted on the www.amsat.org web page during the
event to claim your ARISS certificate. The press release mentions a
timeframe for the QSO's counting toward the award but they didn't say if
there was a cutoff for sending in your QSL information.  Hope this helps ...

ARISS Press Release

If you have had two-way communications with the ISS on voice, packet (APRS),
or through the voice repeater, or have heard the ISS from space in any of
the ARISS operations modes (voice, SSTV, school contact, voice repeater,
digital) between November 30, 2008 to January 15, 2009 you qualify to
receive an ARISS Commemorative Certificate.

Please note on your QSL the ARISS mode of operation (e.g. SSTV, voice,
school, etc) and whether the contact with you was one-way (receive only) or
two-way. On the outside of the QSL envelope, please include the words "25th
Anniversary Certificate" Make sure your envelope is big enough to accept an
8.5 by 11 inch certificate and includes the proper postage. Please refer to
