Re: Walkie-Talkie MIR tests



If you have a Kenwood HT or other QRP (5w packet station) and want to
test your handheld satellite communicator, here are today's (FRI) MIR
passes over the USA.  Times are approx beginning of pass.

PDT   MDT   CDT   EDT
----  ----  ----  ----
...   ...   1155  1254
...   1228  1328  1428
1300  1403  1505  1608
1436  1538  1641  1644
1613  1715  1818  1921

1924  2027  2130  2233

Passes are about 8 minutes long on 145.985.
Please, unless you are using BBS, send UI packets only via R0MIR, and low
power (5w).  NEVER try to connect to someone.  Once you see your UI packet
digipeated, consider it success, and stop sending.

If someone is using BBS, wait till he is finished.
