As Drew stated, the FM and transponder are not always on all the time, 
but the CW beacon should always be going. I have no idea about your 
skill level, so let me suggest basics:

* Are you sure you're on the right frequency?
* Are you compensating for doppler?
* Everything connected correctly?
* Can you hear other sats?

Hope this helps and that's it something simple.
