• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Anyone in the Charlotte, NC area know if any broadcast will be done in the area on the 2mtr/70cm ham bands? I'm getting excited about next months luanch.

Yeah I've got the HF stuff. For years I've always had to monitor on HF. I would like to use vhf/uhf for a change. oh well. I guess it's all a matter of a ham operator wanting to tie up a rig for the duration of a mission.

Or if you're lucky and in the path of the overflight as the Shuttle takes off; the last mission, several folks had 259.7 transmissions until the point of thermal cutoff. I don't know if they're going to use the same freq again. 73s Mike

259.7 has been used since day one and has been heard in the UK.

Your Shuttle Frequency Source

As far as Charlotte Shuttle Mission audio availability, to the best of my knowledge you are probably out of luck. I have never seen any listings for that area. Your best bet is HF or check your cable or satellite provider for the NASA Select TV channel.

As far as the UHF downlinks yes they still use them, but in most cases it is used for ascent and descent, and unless you are in the footprint, you won't hear it. And unless they are transmitting while they are in that footprint which last from second to a couple of minutes, you won't hear them.

As a reminder if you are looking for shuttle and NASA related radio information and frequencies, look no further than the list the frequency managers at KSC have recommended publicly on their website:

The Monitoring Times -- Monitoring NASA Communications at URL http://www.monitoringtimes.com/nasa.html

This list link is also available through our Monitoring Times Reference Library Section. You will also find a link for it on my MT-Milcom Blog at http://mt-milcom.blogspot.com. Here you will find a lot of other Milcom related material (nationwide freqs, trunk systems that are not available at RadioRef, search ranges, hurricane freq list and much more).

And best of all, this entire bunch of stuff is free. Don't settle for the normal internet junk list, get your stuff from the best at MT.
