Saturday's MIR passes (USA)



MIR normally switches to SSTV on the weekends and turns off Packets, but
anything from space on 145.985 is still fun.  These pass times are only
approximate for your time zone.   

PDT   MDT   CDT   EDT             Besides, anyone can see the SSTV 
----  ----  ----  ----            pictures too, by simply taking the
...   ...   ...   1148            audio from their receiver into their
...   ...   1220  1323            sound card and using W95SSTV or other
1152  1254  1357  1500            SSTV software.
1327  1429  1532  1634
1503  1605  1707  1810
1639  1742  1845  1947
1815  1918  2021  2124
1950  2052  2155  ...
2127

If there are any TYPOS in there, just remember, MIR orbits the earth once
every 95 minutes or so and we simply rotate underneath that orbit  on our
24 hour cycle...

Notice, that the "time frame" of passes is the same worldwide "local
time".  Once you hear them, then just add 95 minutes for the next pass
no matter where you are...
