Thanks for reply.
Understood - I only did the one calibration when Funcube was launched. I am
aware that the satellite drifts, but I used to start -1.5Khz below the
calibration point, then move up in frequency.
My point is that I had to start the QSO +6.6Khz - seems a big difference.
Again, thanks for reply

I suggest not calibrating SatPC32 every pass of AO-73 but instead utilize
the plus and minus +/- keys on your keyboard to tweak your uplink as
required. AO-73 tends to move a little bit.

Thank you for your reply - I think I have solved the problem
I use SatPC32 to control my rig and I have calibrated it to be fairly close
for receiving my own transmission early in the pass.
HOWEVER - today, I had to tune 6.5Khz higher than I normally do to hear my
own signal ! Once I found my own signal everything was back to normal
I know there are other people having the same issue, so I wonder what has
happened to the satellite?
Thanks to everyone who has replied.
