> All,
> don't forget that the Space Shuttle is due to launch on Monday 1st
> November. It is due to take-off at 16.40 EDT, which is 20.20 UTC.
> For several hours before the launch there will be several NASA, USCG
> and US Navy ships and aircraft working on HF. Listen to 'Cape Radio'
> on 10780 khz in the 5-6 hours before launch, and listen to see if
> they mention which other HF freq(s) they are using.
> Don't forget to post logs here on UDXF so that we can all listen-in.
> For those of us in Europe, about 20 minutes after launch the STS will
> fly over Europe ... probably south of Eire, across the southern UK,
> ventral Europe and then south-eastern Europe ... and if it is a clear
> night it may be visible to the naked-eye. Even if it's not visible,
> listen on UHF 259.7 AM (if you can) and you may hear a few short
> transmissions from the Space Shuttle.
> Good luck.
