Comms of Last Space Shuttle Flight while in Orbit.
« on: May 01, 2014, 07:38:36 AM »
While digging through my archives of recorded comms and thinking off all the great Space Shuttle comms I've heard I ran across one I thought I'd share.  This was the last shuttle flight (STS-135)

STS-135 A/G Comms 07/20/2011 @ 06:46 EDT. I was picking up STS-135 in orbit on 259.7000 MHz AM.

While its common to hear Air/Ground comms on this freq from the shuttle during lunch and landing, its a rare event to hear this freq active during orbit.

Enjoy

On 7/20, the STS135 crew spent the day preparing for reentry.  This includes hot firing the RCS jets, simulating approaches, and what you hear here is them testing the UHF capabilities with MCC over the various UHF receivers around the world.
