Mir Status June 8, 200

Mir / ISS status report
June 8, 2000

By Miles Mann WF1F,

MAREX-NA (Manned Amateur Radio Experiment, North American Division)

MIR Status: 
The Russian Space Station is currently manned by Cosmonauts Sergei
Zaletin and Alexander Kaleri. Today the Mir crew activated the MAREX
SSTV system for a few orbits. The tentative plan is to  randomly
activate the SSTV system several times over the next few days.  It is
suggested you keep your SSTV system running with Auto Save selected to
capture the images.  
The Mir crew will be coming back to Earth on June 16, so this will be
your last chance to see any live SSTV images until November 2000.  The
Mir station will fly empty until a new crew moves in sometime around
November 2000.

Mir Amateur Radio Status:
Intermittent Voice and SSTV on June 8, 145.985 FM Simplex (SSTV mode
Robot 36). 
We are very interested in getting copies of these Mir SSTV JPG images to
post on our web pages.  If you received a good high quality image (with
out much noise) then could you please send the image directly to
MAREX-NA at wf1f@amsat.org

We will save all images and post the best images received each week on
our Mir-shots web page. Please do not send images to large mailing lists
such as SAREX or AMSAT because they would bog down the internet too
much.  I will post the best
on the MAREX-NA web page http://www.siliconpixels.com/marex/mirshots/

School Schedules:
MAREX-NA received fax from RSC Energia authorizing one  last school
schedule with this Mir crew.  The Schedule will take place next week
(crew work load permitting).  After the schedule, we will post a WEB
address so that your school can visit the page and listen to a
pre-recorded MAREX Mir  School schedule.
