    Re: Polar Possessions of the SU. was: Lunars with SNO-T

    Frank,
    I did not understand this message.
    It looks like you began a sentence but did not finish it.
    (I've never heard of such sextant SNO-U/Y,
    and even cannot figure out what Russian letters correspond
    to your transliteration.)
    The word "snezhnyi" means "made of snow" or related to snow
    in some other way. They would not say this about a sextant.
    They would rather say "Poliarnyi" which means "Polar".
    Alex.
