HELP!! Need help on old MIR contact

I know that this is a page for the ISS...but since most of the crews make up from the old MIR days...I need help on this. NEED HELP ON THIS.....ANY ADVICE?

I made contact with Norman Thagard when he was on MIR.... and sent QSL twice with SASE to

Norman Thagard
Mailcode CB
JSC, (etc) ....

I sent out for the QSL twice but never received one. Did anyone get one? I was dying for this card.
Just curious.
Anyone know where I can get in touch with Nornan I have the whole conversation on tape.

Thanks in advance 73s.

HELP!! Need help on old MIR contact

Hi Mark,

to request MIR Qsl card was necessary to ask for a Manager and not personal Astronaut address.

Manager for MIR in the USA was N6CO Dave Larsen. I have again on my page the old address where send your request but I don´t know if it is valid again.

You can ask to Dave if he has again a Qsl... this is the link to my page

No this was a PERSONAL QSL for Norman THagard he gave ARRL and also me when I spoke to him.

THis was a NASA QSL not a MIR. I have the MIR ones. I also send another Thagard QSL to Dave Larsen as well. He helped me in getting my old MIR contacts (U5MIR) but I never received the Thagard one from JSC he had made.

He had his own NASA QSL for his mission seperate from the MIR ones. and gave the MAILCODE CB at JSC to get one.

Thanks though for your help.

HELP!! Need help on old MIR contact

..No problem Claudio. Thank you for taking the time to help me.

I enjoy the site very much. Unfortunately my old laptop died (bad CMOS battery...and is an ICCHIP battery..not a button cell type so I am having problems finding the IC chip to replace it or get a schedmatic of it to run an exterior 5Vs to the power pins and make it think it has power. Till then I am dead in the water.

Love working ISS... have 8x11 QSL I send people... N6CO and WH6IO were two whom received them.

Again take care and thanks for your help.
