No! Let's make it *real fun.. inverting skeds - every xxx hours, flip
the two stations. Packet goes to 440, SSTV takes the 145, then xxx
hours later, flip 'em back! Give everyone a challenge eventually, and I
think it would make mir more fun. 

(Figgure at a schedule of a week, say, unless it can be done
automatically, which then it could be as little as 6 hours?)

I cannot comment, as I'm not aware what SAFEX is/was..

I think the flipping channels idea would be even better - give everyone
chances to work both modes.. Just about every ham I know has a 2 meter
setup.. Not everyone has 440. If the frequency's Internationally
coordianted as MIR's, does it matter what mode it's being transmitted
