I'm not sure how you can have a source other than NASA, other than two hams
who made independant recordings of Apollo transmissions.  In 1971 (summer
issue) a QST article talks of Dick Knadle(sp?) KRIW who got some, and another
ham, I believe W4HHK received signals as well.

I'd also bet the Russian space agency has stuff.

Please don't take this the wrong way, but if you have questions about any
"fakery" of moon landings, find the Myth Busters TV show.  They did a *really*
good job of debunking several myths about how things were faked.

I do not find this discussion OT for Amsat-bb, because this affects us.  It
erodes the effort of tens of thousands of technical people, and has ripple
effects for the USA, far beyond the original topic.
