Re: ISS Ham Cosmonautics QSO Day

Hello Will, 

Thank you very much for the arrangement and the "suggested" passes.
For some unknown reason, you forgot to include S.America, we will have
a very good pass starting +_ 18.00 UTC until +_ 18.20 UTC and we will
be very happy to be included in the Cosmonautics QSO Day event.
Some years back, S.America had been excluded from a similar evnet
with MIR, managed by Mr.Miles Mann, who at the time gave us some 
unreliable explanation for not including us in the event.
Best Regards, 

Nicolaus Sallay - PP8DA
