Mir Vox & SSTV

These guys just won't quit.  After last weekend when my son Sean 
finally made his first voice contact, my wife Sue KB2TWL tried 
but didn't get through. This mornings 15:57 UTC pass had JP
doing voice and sending SSTV picture with commentary. We heard 
W2KQ  and his wife make a contact in french and then Sue sent up "Whiskey Lima 
Whiskey Lima" and JP called back and had a nice conversation with her.
She thanked him for all the SSTV pictures he has sent. JP said that he would
try to send a picture of the Soyuz if he could find where he left the camera.
Sue also thanked him  for talking to our son KC2DIJ last week and how much it 
meant to him. Then when JP came back he said he found the camera and would 
send the shot and felt it would be the last shot of the Soyuz27. 

And as Mir flew over the horizon they left us with a beautiful out the window 
shot of the Soyuz and left this family hugging Mom for getting her contact in 
right under the wire.

What a crew!
Thank you Mir from,
