I know that it’s true that Apollo 11 did spot a UFO… Is it true that other humans could pick up the television broadcast that was shut down during the spotting of the UFOs? If so, is it true that the hams could pick up Apollo 1 saying that other spacecraft were spotted on the crater edge of the Moon and were much more advanced than Apollo 11′s technology?

I am sorry to disappoint you, but you are repeating stories that are known to be false.  No Astronauts saw “UFO”s.  There are no secret Apollo transmissions, radio or television, picked up by hams.  There was no case of Apollo astronauts spotting other spacecraft on crater rims or anywhere else.  These are all well-known examples of fiction, what Jim Oberg calls “a space forgery hoax gone wild”.  For the truth about these stories, I recommend Oberg’s articles on websites such as http://www.debunker.com/texts/apollo11.html.  The Apollo 11 UFO hoax was discussed specifically in an earlier answer here, with a direct report from Buzz Alrdin about how he was misquoted and his meaning reversed.
