Watched launch live from shore at Titusville, Florida.  First time - It was fantastic even from 12 miles away!
The audio feed from NASA TV rebroadcast on 146.94 MHz was appreciated - it added a lot.  My Kenwood HT with it stock antenna was marginal but provided full-quieting with magnet-mount external antenna.

I agree with Jim, W7LRD.  I have watched many years on TV - always impressive.  Unbelievable up close and in person.  According to NASA, there will be only eight more fliights of the Shuttle.  Viewing of a launch and tour of KSC are worth the trip.
