Dear discuss-lfm members,

I am still anxiously awaiting word regarding inclusion of the
November 19th LFM *Countdown* program in the December NASA-TV schedule.

In the meantime here is a bit of news about the main PBS satellite
carrying a re-feed on December 20th, 1-2pm (Eastern)

Please note the following. This is only a feed on Telstar 401: it is NOT a
guarantee that any individual PBS station will carry it. But some schools
can access the signal directly.

This version runs 57:30, and fixes some audio problems with the orignal
11/19 broadcast: it's the same as will air (at dates still TBD) on

>>>>>Satellite Coordinates for PBS main satellite:

Ku-Band:  PBS K-12 Teacher Resources Services
Telstar 401, 97 degrees West, transponder 8, horizontal, 11915 Mhz, 
audio on 6.2 and 6.8  

>From the contact person at PBS--

       >>>>>We have scheduled the refeed of Live From Mars for Friday, 
        December 20, 1996 from 1:00-2:00 pm on transponder 8.<<<<<<<<<
