Space Station MIR

This section is dedicated to MIR, all crew members, personal of Tsoup, MIREX coordinators and an incredible number of amateur radio operators who spend many hours trying to follow MIR's activities.



If you want to learn about MIR modules you can follow the next link


Listen to my Voice contacts with Jean-Pierre Haignere



MIR is a Russian word that means PEACE or WORLD. Since 1986, when the first module of MIR Space Station went to space, that the amateur radio community has the opportunity to easily contact cosmonauts, as the station has been almost continuously occupied. It is very difficult to tell what I felt when I first contacted a member of the crew in 1997. It was Valery Korzun, the commander of MIR-22. The main activity of the cosmonauts it isn't Ham Radio, of course. They have work to accomplish. Meanwhile, the Ham community can use the PMS (Personal Message System) to send messages to the crew. Remember that there are procedures to work MIR. We must not forget that we're not alone and there are many other operators who are waiting for a chance to talk to space. So, if we follow the rules everybody will be happy. On this page I will try to share my experiences regarding MIR activity. I will update as soon as I have new material. You can follow the many links on this page that can give you important information.

Here you can read a message from Miles Mann (MAREX-NA) on how to behave:


1 Listen first before Transmitting.
2 Wait till the crew says CQ or QRZ
We have been teaching the crew more  Amateur Radio protocol and they are catching
on, slowly.

3 When you hear CQ/QRZ, just say the last two letters of you calls sign, twice and
that's all
     example:  WF WF    (don't say anything else, until you hear the crew say, something similar too.  Station WF please continue?.

4 Keep your conversation short and speak very slowly.  If you are fluent in French
or Russian that's better, use the appropriate languages or English too.

5 When you are done, the crew will usually remember to say CQ/QRZ for the next
station waiting. When the band is too crowded, Jean-Pierre usually says Break Break,
which is his way of asking all stations to please stop transmitting.

6 If the crew is on voice, so not send any packet messages.  The crew will sometimes leave the Kantronics KPC-9612 ON, while they are on voice.  This is so they can read OLD mail while
they are talking on voice

7. Do not ask the crew about the QSL card procedures.  The Mir crew does not Keeps logs of radio contacts.  Just send a card to one of the two address below.

Current Channel, 145.985 FM Simplex.

I would like to ask everyone to please be patient regarding Amateur Radio operations on Mir.  The Amateur Radio portion of the Mir experiments are primarily OFF-Hours experiments.  The Mir crews do have a very busy schedule and only have a very limited amount of FREE-Time to use the educational Amateur Radio experiments.

QSL Information:

Please use one of the following QSL managers and follow the directions for that Manager
and included the following information:
