Amateur Radio Retransmission of Shuttle Audio/Video

NOTE:  This information is unofficial, and its accuracy is not guaranteed.

The Goddard Space Flight Center Amateur Radio Club (GARC) has transmitted, 
by Amateur Radio, NASA Select audio on the following frequencies:

75 Meters; 3.860 MHz. U.S. and Canada coverage*

40 Meters; 7.185 MHz. World wide coverage*

20 Meters; 14.295 MHz. World wide coverage*

15 Meters; 21.395 MHz. World wide coverage*

10 Meters: 28.650 MHz. World wide coverage*

AO-13 (AMSAT OSCAR) Satellite; 145.945 MHz. Primary; 145.955 MHz.
Alternate. This Mode B requires a satellite-high gain antenna

*Coverage is dependent on Solar Activity and Ionosphere conditions. With a
good short-wave receiver and outside antenna, reception should be
possible.  Due to ionospheric conditions and time of day/night, certain
bands have better reception. A search of each band is recommended.

The GARC plans to re-transmit Shuttle video on Amateur TV for hams and ham
TV watchers in the Washington, DC area.  Contacts at GSFC: Russ Jones,
N3EGO, or Frank Bauer, KA3HDO.

The Marshall Center Amateur Radio Club will re-transmit NASA Select audio at
147.100	MHz., 145.1 MHz., and 173.025 MHz.  These transmissions can be heard
only in the local Huntsville, Alabama area.

Persons in the JPL, JSC, KSC, and possibly other centers may provide this
service via amateur radio and other means.

Ed Stluka, W4QAU, MARC, 5/4/89


Note to amateur radio operators:  If Shuttle transmissions are being
rebroadcast in your area, give us the frequencies in a note when you log off
NASA Spacelink.  We'll add your note to this document.
