Re: Mir SSTV 10yr anniversary

I don't know if this of any interest to the site, but I made the first
satellite SSTV contact with Dick Richards on 3jul92.  I have the one 
he sent to me, but cannot locate it.

The pics attached are of the qsl's from him,(front and back) and also 
on my site:



I have never seen what he received from me, and they are probably so 
deep in the archives they will never be seen again!!

The equipment I used was long before computer digital stuff was available, a
ROBOT 1200, with all the mods, and I still have the equipment..
