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.
