In his own words in this video [1] you can hear Adrian Lane, 2E0SDR,
say he contacted the ISS "in October of last year."

I think everyone thought this happened in the last few weeks, even
AMSAT-UK who said he talked to Kjell Lindgren [2] who only just went
into space last month. I was really excited thinking Kjell was going
to be the next Doug Wheelock but now it seems this, at least, is not a
sign of that.

Why did this get all over the media *now* ?
