Is it possible to get NASA TV you HD channel OTA ?

Although this is a satellite driven forum, I believe that the persons that are on this particular forum do you have better information- that being said can this be done using a used satellite and a focal point at a certain distance from the dish? We are after 3760 MHz. Thank you my friends.

Well until I figure out how to download pictures I have a straight aluminum 56 inch beam mounted at the same horizontal plane as dish network?s - secures in three places with 1/4-20 bolts - flat washers -lock washers w/nylock nuts. The materials I have are the multiple element Chinese style antennae that I?m going to take apart and repurpose along with store brand amps. Have built all the GHs and most of nikiml?s. Time to move forward.

Short answer, no.

You will need a satellite dish antenna, minimum diameter 8 feet, a c-band LNB, and a satellite receiver capable of DVB-S2.

See the bolding at the bottom of the following post:

The answer to your question about NASA is that you cannot get the channel OTA, only FTA (or by subscription to a service provider like Cable or Satellite). We have an FTA section to this forum.

As for OTA, if that's your area of interest, please read the following welcome thread and follow the instructions (TVFool, etc) before posting:

There is a NASA TV feed online. Not sure if that helps.
