I've made several attempts to work this bird with my '817, since it's
winter where I live and setting up my IC-910 on my balcony would be

I programmed my radio with the nominal uplink and downlink at 435.180
and 145.980, respectively.  I haven't made any contacts so far, so I'm
wondering if I should adjust the uplink closer to 435.172.  (I'm
assuming, of course, that I haven't been blacklisted or some such
thing, hi.)

Please advise.  Thank you.
