Looks like they are using stuff well above 1gHz, and it's beamed up direct to the satellite, so I think it would be difficult.

Also, I suspect NASA would be intelligent enough to encrypt any of the good stuff, especially when lives depend on it.

I'd be interested to know if there are other means of communications that back up the TDRS. I'd suspect their would be. I know they use some UHF stuff for short range work.
