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.
