Yes, I had the final contact

Yes, I had the final contact with Richard last month, before he signed off, put down the mic, clambered aboard the capsule, and landed on the ground just about 7 hours later! I thanked him on behalf of all those people receiving the SSTV downlink, and for taking time to talk to the schools. (Iain, KI4HLV/6Y5 in Kingston Jamaica, operating the JARA club call: 6Y5RA)
