Re: I heard John Glenn today

You did not hear John Glenn operating the ham bands.  There is no ham gear on
the Discocvery for STS-95.

What you heard was a rebroadcast of a scheduled school to shuttle
teleconference -- probably from W3NAN at the Goddard Spaceflight Center in
Greenbelt Maryland or the Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasdadena Ca.  Both have
access to all NASA audio channels and I know that W3NAN is on the air on all
bands throughout the flight.  Im not sure of the schedule or call being used
at JPL.  

According to yesterdays flight press releasae regarding todays activities,
this was to be a 30 minute space to school teleconference performed using NASA
command channels  -- audio only -- no video.
