 I'm not in the shack all that often when mir passes, but I have aprs set
up and running nearly full time. I did see a VK5 on Sat (I think!!)
evening, pop up, cant remember the call tho'.

Look for me on any pass over Australia in the arvo/evening or in the 0600
local time slot. Tonites passes are: AOS at
	17/08/1999 16:55:31
	17/08/1999 18:26:31
	17/08/1999 20:03:31 

for my QTH. times EST.

I generally send a full aprs posit and/or status, usually with the local wx
rpt. If I'm QSO via Mir i put the gridsquare in the Unproto field so u'll
have to use Grid-in-to mode to see me.

BTW, it would be really neat if everyone who uses Mir would set their
Unproto path to gridsquare via R0MIR (eg, for me Unproto = QF27WD V R0MIR)
even if they're not APRS users.

I've posted to the OZAPRS group and the SAREX group, maybe someone will
take the hint!!!!
