Radio amateurs from Poland created a diploma
commemorating the SSTV activity from the International Space Station on
the occasion of the 80th anniversary of Juri Gagarin's birthday. This
homage to the first man in space coincides with the 85th anniversary of
the Polish Amateur Radio Union (PZK), established February 24th, 1930. A
photo of the diploma is included in the series of pictures transmitted
from the International Space Station.

printed version of the individual commemorative diploma with your name,
surname and call sign, we cordially invite you to share your images
received from the ISS. For this purpose please upload received images to
e-mail a report to the coordinator (address e-mail is below) with your
