N1KSC has its antenna on the KSC VAB and works with the KSC PAO as part of
its mission. I'm not sure what K4GCC that I listen in on had to do, but
they can dial into a line at NASA, giving real-time audio that doesn't
suffer from the delays that most online streams do. My wife was watching a
stream on her phone while I listened on my HT and when her stream was
saying liftoff, we were watching the rocket had cleared the tower already,
and my HT was in-sync with what we were watching.
