Radio Ham Operator over the Moon at Decoding Space Message

Colin Bowman M0NLP, Kent UK spoke to his local newspaper after receiving a Slow Scan TV (SSTV) picture from the International Space Station (ISS) and in doing so gained some good publicity for the hobby.

I went mad when I realised I had decoded an entire picture. I had to e-mail my children straight away, though, as they are both licensed amateurs as well and my daughter has just started a new job in the space industry in Turin.
