Re: NASA TV Question



It has been mentioned here before, but maybe some newer people don't know
that it's also on Dish Network, channel 213 on the 119degree satellite
(Echostar IV, I think), and it comes with the very basic "Top 40 Package".
(This, of course, is only for the home people.  NOT for the cable operators,
just in case any of you were going to say something.)  ;-)
