NASA TELEVISION EXPANDS REACH WITH SATELLITE SWITCH JULY 24

     NASA Television will improve coverage to viewers in 
Alaska and Hawaii as well as the continental United States 
when it switches its signal from one satellite to two 
different ones.

Beginning July 24, NASA Television will be seen in the 
continental United States on AMC-6, at 72 degrees west 
longitude, Transponder 9, 3880 MHz, vertical polarization, 
audio at 6.8 MHz. If you live in Alaska or Hawaii, NASA TV 
will now be seen on AMC-7, at 137 degrees west longitude, 
Transponder 18, at 4060 MHz, vertical polarization, audio at 
6.8 MHz.

NASA Television will no longer broadcast from its present 
satellite, AMC-9, after July 24.

This satellite change is not associated with NASA 
Television's transformation to a digital format, scheduled 
for sometime in the next twelve months.
