Hi Norm,

Do you have a computer near the radio?

If so, Mike DK3WN has a little software solution to your question/problem!



Pick your satellite, move the slider...and off you go.

You'll at least be CLOSE....if you know the downlink of a station, use the program to see what the uplink will be.  Of course, Doppler complicates things...move around a little for Doppler, etc.
