Reception of Shuttle/ISS Audio From Geostationary Satellite

Being a bit "ignorant" of the details regarding my question, I thought that I
would post it here, and hope that someone might be able to answer, or help
me out with this!

Is it possible to use a Satellite TV-type dish to receive unscrambled Shuttle/ISS
audio from any geostationary satellites?

Also, does anyone have the locations of said geostationary satellites used for
Shuttle/ISS audio purposes?

Thanks in advance!
