Possible Shuttle Launch Tonight

The first launch opportunity is Thursday, Dec. 7, with liftoff
targeted for 9:35 p.m. EST. This launch time is approximately in the
middle of a 10-minute launch window.

Booster Recover Vessels Freedom Star and Liberty Star are audible on the US West Coast on 10780 kHz, working Cape Radio at 1842 UTC. Closer to KSC, listeners heard them leave port. Range safety comms are likely on the same frequency as we get closer.

Weather does not look good for a launch today, but we'll have to wait and see.
