Line-shape analysis of (Formula presented) NMR spectra is used to probe vortex melting and dynamics in aligned powders of (Formula presented)(Formula presented)(Formula presented). Vortex transitions are identified by comparing their dynamics with the NMR time scale. Line- shape changes indicate a well-defined melting transition at a temperature, (Formula presented). Below (Formula presented) there is a coexistence regime of solid and liquid vortices with a lower bound, (Formula presented), which marks complete vortex freezing.
