ah, to be in Hawaii and talking to space travelers via ham radio. Could anything else be closer to paradise?
[Comment from NH6YK — hmmmmm, hard to say…. OK, I’d like more visual passes where the cosmonauts are talking, so I could sit on the beach, sipping a cool coconut, and talk-story with them while I was watching them go by…. 🙂 🙂 🙂 I should put in a picture of me trying to do that from KH4…. Alas, I never caught MIR on voice from Midway….. but did see them! I caught KB5SIW instead!] http://stuwww.kub.nl/~pe1rhp – a web page which calculates Mir passes based on your location. http://www.aball.de/~pg/ – German ham Peter Guelzow DB2OS’s visits to the Mir control center and Star City. Includes plenty of non-ham info on Mir too. Mostly English pages. *plenty* of photos of Peter’s trip. http://oit1.iusb.edu/~kthews/MIR.html – Michigana Mir page http://www.cyberportal.net/dhend/dave1.html – N1PPP’s page, including voice files of sample Mir contacts, and other information. http://infothuis.nl/muurkrant/mirmain.
