Yes, It was on:

	 July, Sept-Dec 1996
	 Jan-Apr,July,Nov,Dec 1997
	 Jan. 1998
I have 450 entries in my log from those dates on
the MIR UHF repeater. It was harder to work than
AO-27 but may were able to do it with HT's.

I worked 83 grid squares and 33 state on it.
It was fun! I sure do miss it but then a lot
of others enjoyed the SSTV that seemed to have
replaced it.
