That would be because the 437.55 signal was the ISS radio cross-banding 
ARISSat-1's 2 meter signal, not the satellite's 70cm TX ...

Well said Bob. Even if the 70 CM antenna was still rolled up, I still had a
much stronger signal on the 400 MHZ band than  on 2M, when they were doing
the test earlier this week. Enjoy the bird and get your kids to listen when
it comes by. That's the point. So everyone take a breath and have some fun
with ARISSAT-1.
