Receiving Hubble on your scanner?

Hubble's transmitter operates around 2150 MHz, spread spectrum. The
signals are directed upward towards the tracking and data relay satellites
in geosynchronous orbit. Only the engineering telemetry is transmitted
continously, the science data (pictures) are stored on a solid state
recorder and dumped at 1 megabit per second through TDRSS three or four
times a day. Bottom line is that I don't think you're going to hear it
on your scanner. Thanks for your interest.
