Which numbers?  Wavelength or frequency?

There are at least three ways I see to describe a  channel: frequency,
wavelength, IEEE/AMSAT band name.  If precision is the goal, then it
probably needs to be frequency - but MHz or GHz?  If you are talking a
passband, then it seems like wavelength or band name would be better.
Then there is also the old AMSAT mode describing both uplink and
downlink, so 4.

Again, it doesn't much matter which, but to prevent confusion, pick
one and stick with it.
