STS-127 to launch on June 17

NASA - Space Shuttle: "Space Shuttle Endeavour's STS-127 Launch Set for June 17
Mon, 15 Jun 2009 07:27:47 PM GMT+0200

NASA managers have scheduled the next launch attempt of space shuttle Endeavour's STS-127 mission for 5:40 a.m. EDT (0940z) on Wednesday, June 17.

Endeavour's planned June 13 liftoff was postponed because of a leak associated with the gaseous hydrogen venting system outside the shuttle's external fuel tank. The system is used to carry excess hydrogen safely away from the launch pad.

As a result, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO, and Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite, or LCROSS, are set to lift off together aboard an Atlas V rocket on Thursday, June 18. That launch was moved to June 18 to accommodate Endeavour's June 17 liftoff."

Interesting frequencies for this event:
5711 kHz/USB
10780 kHz/USB
259.7 MHz/NFM (post-launch)
261.575 MHz/NFM
261.700 MHz/NFM (also active prior to launch)
261.875 MHz/NFM
