Looking at the last pass over VK, 145.950 is not within the pass-band.
Try 145.960 which is more central to the pass-band.
Not sure of uplink frequencies though.

Hello all.
I seem to have a wee problem with working Ao-73. The problem I cant work it
at all. I am hearing people talking but when I attempt to find my downlink
nothing heard. I have tried sending cw up and tuning downlink and also
tuning uplink and nothing.  I have set up tuning for 145.950 down and
435.150 up. Am missing something here?
I spoke to my good friend and very good Sat operator Derrick Gm0fmw and he
also cant access it with a fairly good antenna set-up. We are both in
Edinburgh Scotland Is this the problem?
Please all help will be appreciated .

Thanks Kev MM0KJG
