Hi Doug, KA9DLP

Hold the RX steady and adjust the TX for doppler.This is what I did
manually from OSCAR-6 and I do actually on VO-52, FO-29 and

Subject: [amsat-bb] SSB Operation on the satellites.

I am new to the satellites. Got to where I can hear my downlink if the bird
higher than 15 degrees. My question is about handling the doppler shift.

If you do not have a sat program automatically correcting you rig frequency,
what is the most common or preffered technique? 1 - Hold the TX steady and
the RX for doppler or 2- Hold the RX steady and adjust the TX for doppler? I
know this must be a basic question but I am learning. Thanks,
