[amsat-bb] Ao 73 problems

I have found that computer tuning for AO-73 simply doesn't work...  the 
satellite frequency drifts enough that your up- and downlinks won't stay in 
sync for long.  I leave my downlink frequency alone as much as possible 
(unless needed to chase the other guy), and manually adjust the uplink, and 
that has worked well for me.
