Hello Trevor,
Congratulations to Helen Sharman GB1MIR and to all those who made 'Ham  
Radio' operational from MIR space station. This is certainly a great  
achievement. On this 20th Anniversary (I suppose), we express our  
sincere thanks with gratitude to everyone from the Russian, American  
and European Space Agencies and various Amateur Radio societies around  
the World. All that what 'Ham radio' from space is today is due to the  
uncompromising and relentless pains, efforts and determination put in  
by these people.
