Yes! Check out Yahoo Group: amateur-DSN
There may not be any current discussion on Selene but the archives
should have some around the time it originally began orbit.
This group consists of hams and other observers of NASA's and other's
space probes (generally beyond Earth orbit). DSN refers to the Deep
Space Network of tracking stations that track and control/receive
deep space missions. Most observing surrounds the x-band centered on
8415-MHz but also includes the 2200-MHz band. There is no commercial
equipment for 8415 and most equipment and antennas are HB. If
interested in joining their discussion you must register with Yahoo
groups. But you may read their discussions without joining:
In the near future (2009), I hope to build a DSN downconverter to
start listening up there with my 16-foot dish.

PS: I worked in the DSN 1971-1979
