Hello Friends,

HAPPY TIMES ARE HERE AGAIN!!




ISSCOM.001                                                               =
                                                                        =
31 October 2000=20


(ISSCOM stands for: International Spacestation - Communications.)


Soyuz-TM31: This transportship with the first permanent crew for the =
International Spacestation (from now in in all reports ISS) blasted off =
from Baykonur on 13.10.2000=20

At 07.52.47UTC.=20


Launch and the phase until reaching the status of a real 'space ship' =
took place flawlessly.=20


The crew consists of the Russians Gidzenko (commander), Krikalyov (board =
engineer) and Shepherd, who will take over command after ingress in the =
ISS.=20


The call of the crew is (for the time being) Uran, so Uran-1, 2 and 3.=20


Docking at the docking port of the Zvezda module is scheduled for =
2.11.2000 at approx. 0919UTC.=20


Communications:


Already in the pass in the 2nd orbit Soyuz-TM31 came in my range.=20


2nd orbit:


10.55.16UTC Telemetry on 166.140 mc.

10.55.50     Begin of voice communications on 121.750 mc FM-N (with now =
and then QRM traffic Groundservices Rotterdam Airport)


            Approx. 10.57.00 LOS (Loss of signal)


KRIKALYOV: We hear you very well. We equalized the air-pressure in the =
BO (life compartment) and entered this. We checked the air-pressure and =
took off our spacesuits. We no problems. The pressure in the BO was 820 =
MM mercury, in the SA (descent module) 750 MM. The pressure is now =
equalized and we opened the valves. The pressure of the nitrogen we =
calculated as 619 MM.=20


3rd orbit:=20


12.25.20UTC Telemetry on 166.130 mc

12.26.00 Voice comm. on 121.750 mc

Approx. 12.30.20 LOS


GIDZENKO: We hear you well, together with a kind of airtraffic =
conversations. We gave 2 impulses: the 1st one 18.4, and the 2nd one =
15.16. We activated the SRVK (system for regeneration of condensation =
into water). The system works without problems.=20

(Answer on a question of TsUP) Yes, we succeeded doing that on the 1st =
channel. Krik: The pressure? In the SA 750 MM and in the BO 820MM. So =
they remain stable. Krik: That was approx. 812MM.=20

(TsUP reads out a series of 4 figure groups, possible times for =
establishing communications, among them perhpaps stations in the USA)

4th orbit:=20

13.54.30UTC 166.140 mc Telemetry (transmittter already commanded on in =
westerly direction, so not in range of Shcholokovo)

(nothing heard on 922.755 mc, possibly due to concentration on 121.750 =
mc)

13.59.00 121.750 mc Voice comm-s=20

14.03.00 LOS


Gidz: We feel very well and are ready to do our work. We no problems at =
all. Yes, we even eaten somewhat. We have been doing the TV-tests, but =
did not complete these. For this reason we were not able to switch on =
the Chayka (orientation system of the ship). So we did the YV-tests, =
Before and we already saw that the display worked, and also the camera =
worked and we switched over het objectives. But this did not work =
synchronously (together) and that was why we could not switch on Chayka. =



Then reactions on instruction and information from TsUP, for instance =
about RO -manual orientation-, about the preliminary orientation during =
the 16th orbit and about orbit corrections to follow. And finally TsUP =
reads out times for communications.)
