ARISS Named Newsline's Newsmaker of the Year

The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) program has been named International Newsmaker of the Year for 2021 by Amateur Radio Newsline. 

In addition to "enthusing youngsters in the magic of space and radio," said Newsline, the program supporting amateur radio contacts between school groups and astronauts in orbit has also "generated publicity for amateur radio in the mainstream media channels of radio, TV and newspapers." ARISS is the third recipient of the Newsline award.
