I am not personally familiar with the 436, but you can look thru Brevard Co's and see if you can grab whatever your scanner can decode, as long as you are in range.

The Russian frequencies are active during EVA’s. Keep an eye out for ISS contacts with schools in the path near your QTH. Easily heard with a rubber duck on the 436 on 145.800. The APRS Packet digipeater can be heard with a little better antenna on 145.825 I just made several APRS contacts on a pass about an hour ago with my D72A and an Arrow 3 element antenna.

Is anyone aware what type of radio system that the new SpaceX program uses to communicate back down to earth?

Not a radio post but possible frequencies.

I saw this posted earlier here on another forum.

Astronauts will fly up east coast

older info - All three of the UHF frequencies (296.8 MHz, 259.7
MHz and 243.0 MHz) are preset in the UHF transmitter and cannot be
altered by the flight crew.

also older info -
The 279.0-MHz frequency
can transmit or receive only among the two EVA astronauts and the
orbiter, not the ground stations.

unknown if these channels are still used
