This is an update regarding the K6DUE ISS Commemorative Event Certificate.
The certificate printing was completed a few weeks ago and the certificates were distributed to the international delegates at the ARISS Meeting that has held as ESA ESTEC, Netherlands on March 26-27. The international delegates planned to forward these to their QSL distributors.
In the USA, I understand that the certificates were mailed out this past week. So those that made contacts should see these in the mail soon.
From a statistics standpoint, approximately 130 hams will be receiving certificates. Congratulations!!
