Should I be able to hear AO-51 using an eggbeater with no preamp?. 

I can hear VO-52 just fine but have not heard AO-51at all, so I have to wonder why. I'm listening on 435.15. Perhaps the sat is not active while over DM03?  Or am I kidding myself thinking I should be able to hear it without a preamp? I realize the VO-52 downlink is 2m as opposed to the 70cm AO-51 downlink. I'm having my preamps repaired but until then I could use some advice/opinions.
