Re: Primestar, Shuttle audio

I just tuned in this signal...  found it at 1181.6 MHz off the lnb signal, which is a 
little off what is expected from the above (ie the above suggests +/- 11.3 MHz off the 
center freq of that transponder, ie 1190 +/- 11.3 or 1201.3 or 1178.7), however with a 
consumer lnb, there is typically several MHz of drift, so it could be my LNB that is off.

It turns out that it is identical to the audio heard on NASA-TV, which is on channel 9.  
I was hoping that this might be raw audio without the commentator, and hopefully without 
their 7 second delay, but that is not the case.  It will be interesting to hear what 
comes over that channel when NASA-TV goes off to one of their press conferences.  I'm 
hoping that they will stay with the astronauts.
