I heard that 10780 was tested the other day....but I have not heard anything on any of those frequencies.

I have also heard that NASA disassembled all of their HF antennas years ago (have not verified this) --- but it would make sense for them to remote into another HF transmit site rather than maintain their own systems.

Still worth taking a listen - but my guess is that HF is the backup to the backup.

Yeah willing to bet its a "Backup" Freq. Not like back in the Apollo and Spacelab days.
