___________________________ MIR News __________________________ 

Yesterday June 25, 1997 Progress M-34 cargo vehicle collided with 
the Spektr module of Mir space station earlier today but the crew 
survived. The collision occured before 09:18 UTC during Progress' 
flyaround in remote control mode before scheduled re-docking. 

The cargo spacecraft sheared a half of Spektr solar panel 
and made damage to the module itself. 

Progress M-34 cargo vehicle collided with one of the Spektr module's 
solar panels and cut a hole of some 30x40 centimeters in it !!!!! 

-> Launch of Progress M-35 scheduled on Friday would be rescheduled by 
no more than 10 days. This cargo craft would deliver electric cables 
(to be built in hurry) and the crew would do EVA and connect Spektr 
solar panels with the electric system of the station. 

Progress M-34 is airtight and controllable and by 13:20 UTC today it 
was some 2.5 kilometers from Mir. Tomorrow it would be deorbited.

_________ USE R0MIR-1: ____________________________________________ 

In the interest of all, its use in the packet mode on the VHF 
band should respect these simple rules: 

1 - Do not use the station as a simple "digipeater": address 
the traffic "VIA" R0MIR. 

2 - Reserve the PMS "R0MIR-1" for messages destined for the 
crew only! 

QSOs not respecting these rules will not qualify for obtaining a QSL. 
Sign on your QSL the registration number of your msg save in the PMS!

For WW send your QSL + SASE + IRC Coupon at: N6CO in U.S.A.
