Utility Planet is the official blog for the column of the same name in The Spectrum Monitor. It replaces Utility World in the discontinued Monitoring Times magazine. 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.

STS-128 On Schedule
The crew has entered the vehicle. Launch time remains 11:59 PM EDT (0359 UTC). Weather is, to quote NASA, "Trending in the wrong direction." Lots of popup thunderstorms, though so far none close enough to cause launch constraints.
