    A pass like the one mentioned by Allen below, overflying near 47S, 140W on a 
    descending track, is a good choice because it provides for relatively long 
    communication passes at BOTH Baikonur and Ulan-Ude.  
    Anyone know if any other Russian communication network ground stations 
    besides those two would be able to issue the deorbit commands?  
    BTW, where ARE all the Russian MIR and ISS ground communication stations
