ARLS027 Mir seasons greetings

German astronaut Thomas Reiter, DF4TR/DP0MIR, will send seasons
greetings to all hams and swls from aboard the Mir space station.
Reiter will remain aboard Mir until February 1996.  Reiter will
record messages using a digital voice recorder constructed by Thomas
Kieselbach, DL2MDE.  The device can store up to eight minutes of
messages.

Reiter also will transmit live from DP0MIR as time permits.  The
main transmission frequency is 145.800 MHz.

Because of some missing parts, including a diplexer for the
dual-band antenna, 70-centimeter activity from Mir has been delayed.
These parts and a 9600-baud TNC are on their way to Mir now.
Frequencies to be used are 437.925 MHz for voice and 437.975 MHz for
packet, simplex mode.
