Utilities are all VLF/LF/MF/HF (and sometimes low-band VHF) radio communications except broadcasting, CB, and non-emergency amateur. If you understood the last sentence, you know enough to read this blog.

LRO/LCROSS Is Holding
The Atlas launch vehicle has gone into a planned hold at t-4 minutes. This is a built in 20-minute hold, but the count cannot resume unless weather improves. When and if they do resume, things will happen fast.
Launch opportunities are at 5:12, 5:22, and 5:32 EDT.
