I did a google search today for a list of frequencies that I could enter
into both my 817 and 857 for AOS thru to LOS for AO-7....Not sure when I am
calling on a frequency where to listen for a call back....
I remember playing years ago when I first started radio with the Russian
sats on 10/15...I think RS11 and 12.......and finding the person calling you
when calling CQ....

Good luck, I need help as well..

Hello all. I have just started out in SSB satellites and I have been unable
to have a QSO  through any yet. I can always find the downlink frequency but
I can never find the uplink frequency. Is there any particular or easy way
of tuning in the uplink frequency quick enough before the Doppler moves off
frequency on the downlink. I'm using a Yaesu FT847 with a collinear antenna.
Ive been searching everywhere but have not found out any answers yet.....any
help would be appreciated.! 73 de MM3YCG.
