Re: Did I Hear MIR

It sounds to me like you did hear Mir. From what you have said you could
not get a QSL, as you did not hear a callsign, and as such you don't know
if you heard Mir. And that is of course the reason for your message, right?

A QSL is to confirm, either a contact or a reception report. In order to
qualify for a QSL, you need the following. 

1. Call sign of station heard/worked.
2. Time of day you heard or worked the station.
3. Frequency contact/heard was on.
4. RST.

You do have three out of the four, but the callsign is most important, and
that you lack.

Good luck and keep trying, you can copy MIR almost daily, also listen to
143.625 WFM, you will hear Mir on this frequency talking to ground
