[amsat-bb] Couple of 736r questions..

I had a few questions about the operation of the Yaesu 736r.

1: I am on one of the SSB satellites (440/2 meters) - I hear my signal coming back down and all seems fine. Shortly afterward the RX and TX frequencies are not in sync so I need to adjust one of them to find and hear myself again. Which is best to adjust RX or TX?

2: In trying to make life easier by using the Memories Recall (MR) on the unit. I put in the frequencies of the centerband of each of the satellites. It is easiest to quickly adjust my frequency by just selecting Memory Recall 1, 2, 3, etc. That works fine for the FM satellites, but I am locked into that frequency on the SSB birds and I cannot use the VFO to adjust +/- my frequencies. If I hit VFO I go back to the frequency I was using before I did the Memory Recall. Is there a way to use the Sat Memories yet have the VFO work when you get there without changing the Memory contents as you would if you used the VFO/M button? Any tricks?

Thanks for your time.
