MIR TEN YEARS



Dear Amsaters

The following text was send via Energia´s radio amateur office celebrating
tenth years of the hamradio station on MIR.

73 Gustavo Carpignano, LW2DTZ
AMSAT LU


On November 6, 1988 amateur radio transmitting and receiving equipment first
in the astronautics started functioning on board MIR russian space orbital
station.
Within the past decade more than 60 cosmonauts and astronauts have made
thousands of radio contacts with radioamateurs of the Earth.

Many Thanks to those who promoted and participated in amateur radio
communication with MIR.

RV3DR, Serge Samburov.
