I am somewhat new to satellites, but I have a question. I use a computer
program to help with Doppler shift and to manage satellite memories. On AO-7
and VO-52 I have the following set as the middle of the pass band. This is
what I set into the radio VFO. I have noticed that I have to adjust the
transmitter frequency. I thought that the TX and RX would track each other?
Does the relationship between TX and RX frequencies on the satellite change?
If I am setting the wrong base frequency into my VFO's for these two
satellites, what are better frequencies to use?
