Looks like you have your uplink/downlink modes reversed
Satellite Name - Name matching the name in the Keplerian Elements file
Downlink Frequency - True frequency in KHz on which the satellite is
Uplink Frequency - True frequency in KHz on which the satellite is receiving
Downlink Mode - emission used for this satellite on this downlink frequency
Uplink Mode - emission used for this satellite on this uplink frequency
Tracking Mode - whether the uplink and downlink frequencies track in normal
or reverse mode
Downlink Offset - downlink offset in KHz (see Section 5 below)
Uplink Offset - uplink offset in KHz (see Section 5 below)
While the have the correct uplink/downlink frequencies listed, each radio is
a little different and using SatPC32 to control your radio Doppler will
necessite tweaking these numbers slightly.
Be sure and read the section in the SatPC32 Manual & FAQs under CAT on
adjusting your offset. The FM downlink is easy to adjust by looking at your
Discriminator meter reading on your receiver (if you have this feature).
The uplink calibration can be set in steps of 10, 100 or 1000 Hz with the
corresponding up/down controls in the "CAT" menu. The 10-Hz steps can also
be set with the "normal" +/- keys, the 100-Hz steps with the +/- keys of the
numeric block of the keyboard.
Once set and stored you should be able to click on this mode under CAT and
you will always be good to go.
Hope you enjoy this mode.
