The Voyager spacecrafts can only have their very weak signals picked up by the Deep Space Network. This is managed by the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratories in California. So, no, it could not be directly connected to Houston as they don't have the large and sensitive receivers to pick up the fading signals.
