Cosmonauts Enroute to Mir



Hello All Mir Fans,
    For those following the progress of Mir and the possible return of
Amateur Radio SSTV, Voice and Packet after the new Crew boards Mir, there
are 2  interesting stories now running on the web:

                                    http://www.msnbc.com/news/303767.asp


http://www.cnn.com/cwc/WORLD/europe/story2.html

    Also of interest for those who are tracking Mir, or getting ready to
track Mir, Norad has added the Keplerain elements for the Soyuz TM-30 which
is presently carrying the Cosmonats, Commander Sergei Zalyotin and Alex
Kaleri, U8MIR to the Mir space Station.  If the Soyuz Keps are added to one
of the tracking programs we can watch the progress of the 2 space vehicles.
Presently as of 12:50 UTC Wed Apr 5, 2000 these space vehicles are an
estimated 800 miles apart.  The Soyuz TM-30 is ahead of Mir.
    Keep tuned for further updates.  Farrell Winder, W8ZCF.
