If you are too high in the pass band / waterfall you can adjust the
center frequency down a few hundred Hz in the settings file. Or just
tune the VFO of the 10m radio a little until you are where you want to
be on the waterfall.
I have noticed the ROBOT-Beacon does turn on the NO-84 transmitter at
times. If you are not turning the satellite on, use more power. 40- 80
watts works for me most of the time. Expect your signal to be
noticeably weaker than the telemetry down at 312Hz.
I made the last pass but was maybe 2KC higher. Also, I only see myself
when the Robot-Beacon comes on.
Saw two other guys calling CQ .. Looks like they too were using DopplerPSK
One was KC4LS btw
