Using launch vector TLE from the website (epoch 06350.62500000), AOS was about 
30 seconds early (0617:15 UTC predicted), LOS about 1 minute early.  Cable 
wrap and ground clutter make it hard to get much more accurate on this pass.  
The next one should be better for nailing down AOS/LOS times.  Used 437.067 
MHz as the center frequency and still had to tune down about 5 kHz for best 
reception.  Some of that freq offset would be explained by Genesat leading 
the TLE.
