Re: ISS Ham Cosmonautics QSO Day

Hi Will,

Thank you for your return message and we hope that the crew will switch
on the radio well before starting with the Western Russia schedule, a 20
min. earlier will serve Brazil and SA.
In the future I will send you on a weekly basis "good passes" to you, or in
other words, you tell me what will be your schedules, after you get set up
with your procedures.
We keep in touch.
Best Regards and Tks
