Hi everyone:

A new cargo module has docked with Mir, to help get Mir ready for the
Crew in April.
Thanks to Farrell for finding this item on the MSNBC news web.

Hello All Mir Fans,
For those following Mir there is some very interesting News  reported by
MSNBC now running on their Web page at:


Many of us will be anxiously awaiting news regarding the reactivation of
the Amateur Radio equipment including the PMS and SSTV System.

In a few months the Mir Space Station may be activating the amateur
radio projects, including the MAREX-NA SSTV project.  
The International Space Station (Alpha) may also be installing a new
SSTV system as early as Q4 2000.  
Now is the time to start getting your satellite station  ready to
transmit and receive Slow Scan Television signals.

I have provided a few web links, which can help you, get your satellite
station ready to receive SSTV images.

Suggested Receiving Station for Satellite SSTV Images.
