Anyone know of any Radio Frequencies that are active for space missions of any kind. When I'm out here in my shop working with SETI, I listen for ISS chatter when I know thier close. I haven't heard anything yet, but then again my scanner only scans 200 channels a minute.Currently scanning 039.980-040.020 MHz- Space Research.

Will be interesting if you can pick anything up, T'. I suspect you might need
a dish to capture a usable signal.

Nasa has a few active frequencies out there where you can get transmissions from the international space station and what-not.

I miss using my scanners to collect satellite image data and compile it.

Since the bandplan rearrangement here in the US I haven't used my scanners much as there's a whole lot less to do.

Once I invest in a modern bandplan scanner with digital processing, I'll be back in the game. My most recent scanner can do all kinds of trunking and some digital signals too, but again it's kind of worthless with the bandplan rearrangement.

Seriously though it's an incredibly fun hobby to use a scanner to collect data and software to decode the data. I spent many hours over many years doing such.

yes,I have always had fun with it. I still do. I really want to get into Ham radio. Thats a dream. Its on my bucket list though. I'm slowing turning my garage into a comms station/lab. Don't work on mechanical stuff to much anymore,due to the dissabilties, but still manage to service all the vehicles and equipment.

Seti,scanners,and CB Radio in the garage now. I'm enjoying my retirement.
