[amsat-bb] Uplink frequency of FM satellites

Thanks Paul, 
I had heard that AO-85 was lower than the nominal, 435180, and did a short test yesterday.
435180 gave acceptable audio and 435168 produced distorted and noisy audio.
I’ll try 435172. The satellite is so busy it’s hard to get a good test in.

There's nothing to suggest that 145.850 isn't it for SO-50. 

Measurements after launch showed that the uplink for AO-85 is about 435.172 MHz.

  Is there any good current data on the actual center uplink frequency at the satellite of the current crop of FM satellites such as SO-50 and AO-85?
