Yes, I also think that perhaps slots with other countries such as
_South_Africa_ for
example should be considered....maybe something can be worked out.

Well I am in South Africa (Locator KG50DK) which is UCT+2, and the next
Mir pass
will be at approx. 23:50 UTC 28 July, 1:50am here, so I will attempt to
contact the fellows
on 145.985 simplex, and hopefully will be able to make a voice QSO.
