I was on this morning for the pass you noted and made
3 contacts around 1350 UTC, there was plenty of
activity and the signal from the bird was strong.  So
if you were listening at 435.3 mhz, plus or minus 10
for the doppler, and if your clock was correct,
something must be wrong somewhere.  Your antenna is
not blocked by trees or anything, is it?  And you are
hearing local 70cm repeaters with no problem?

I listed the pass prediction for ISS, not AO-51. Here
is the correct
Online Satellite Pass Prediction for AO-51 this

I was trying to listen to both. I wanted to see if I
could hear the ISS
digipeater. AO-51 was tuned on one band and ISS on the
other. Nothing
noise from either. I'll concentrate on AO-51 now until
I get a better
understanding of what is going on.
