Hey!

I read that NASA is launching the shuttle 1st. of July.

What frequencies will I be able to pick up in Lake City?
I might happen to be around Cape Canaveral at that time, so please list all interesting freqeuencies.

Thank you for you help :)

Have a good one!

Well, its hard to say as their frequencies are different all the time. You pretty much just plug them in and hope for the best.

You can start here: http://www.milaircomms.com/hf_nasa.html
And here: http://www.milaircomms.com/uhf_ksc.html

You can also search around on the forums also, there are normally posts around the time of shuttle launches and people will post helpful little compilations of NASA frequencies.

Hope that helped.

Just a really, really dumb question but will there be anything I could pick up in Indiana?

All NASA to shuttle comms are digitanlly encoded and encrypted and not receivable. All you can get is some lift-off and reentry UHF if you are in the path, and EVA comms overhead.

Suggest we stick with the NASA TV feeds which carry 24/7 shuttle comms.

We have 3 or 4 websites, including Grove's, with NASA freqs at the end of the Frequencies section of....

However, I think rdale is correct - most shuttle comms are probably not receivable; the only thing you MIGHT have a chance at if you live in Florida or along the launch path - as it was suprisingly widely reported in the last mission - was 259.7 which was used during launch and return (if they come back to Florida) 73s Mike
