Because of Doppler shift, logging exact frequencies is kind of pointless.  Just note which band and mode (fm, ssb, etc) was in use for both uplink and downlink, and you should be fine.  Note that some call out the band letter (v for 2 meters), some use wavelength (e.g. 2 meters), and some the general frequency (145 mhz).  I've seen QSL cards done each way.

Also, if you don't like any of the QSL cards that are orderable by mail, you can make your own with any number of PC graphics applications.  Mine are done in Powerpoint (OpenOffice), and printed on card stock.

Subject: [amsat-bb]  Logging Frequencies

A quick question. I've been on the birds about a week now and have started
keeping a log and breaking out the QSL cards. So what do enter for the
frequency? The uplink or downlink or both? Or nothing since the frequencies
are well known (at least on the FM birds).
Thank in advance for the answers. Also thank to all who've worked me the
past week. It's been fun.
