NASA Television Expands Reach With Satellite Switch July 24
NASA Television will improve coverage to viewers in Alaska and Hawaii as well as the continental United States when it switches its signal from one satellite to two different ones.

Beginning July 24, NASA Television will be seen in the continental United States on AMC-6, at 72 degrees west longitude, Transponder 9, 3880 MHz, vertical polarization, audio at 6.8 MHz. If you live in Alaska or Hawaii, NASA TV will now be seen on AMC-7, at 137 degrees west longitude, Transponder 18, at 4060 MHz, vertical polarization, audio at 6.8 MHz.

NASA Television will no longer broadcast from its present satellite, AMC-9, after July 24.

This satellite change is not associated with NASA Television's transformation to a digital format, scheduled for sometime in the next twelve months.
