JSC rebroadcasts the PAO feed on the W5RRR machine in Houston, so I'd
imagine something similar goes on at KSC.  I'd scan around 146.60-147.40 on
2 meters and 442.0-445.0 on 440 and see what you find.

ARRL directory doesn't list anything that looks like it's connected to KSC,
but there are several repeaters in Titusville -- 145.49, 146.67, 146.775,
146.91, 146.97, 147.075, 444.15, and 444.925.  Most of those are TARC
affiliated.  There are also a couple on Merritt Island, which is fairly
near by -- 146.94 and 443.95.  If nothing is rebroadcast on those, maybe
someone there can point you to where the action is.  Worth a try, anyway.
