ARISS Marked its 20th Anniversary:

The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) had outstanding success with many receiving its Slow Scan TV images of the past and present. The images were collected from throughout the world and transmitted on a number of days starting with July 20. The ISS Russian Segment computer stored them and each were transmitted by a Kenwood TM-D710 transceiver. What resulted was a display of unique images sharing the accomplishments of ARISS over the last two decades. They traced development from the first meeting that led to ARISS being the voice link for school groups, to the modern era of Ham-TV delivering television contacts from the space station with students in some countries.
