Are you having issues adjusting for Doppler?

Hi All,

Would be grateful for any advice or your thoughts on the following...!

Ok, so I have my station virtually completed now. I have the rotator setup correctly
and with the LVB Tracker interface unit and SatPC32 now tracking SATs correctly (it appears).
I have a 4 ELE (2M) and 9 ELE (70cm) on the rotator.

I can receive very good copy of downlinks from quite low passes on both 2M & 70CM,
and I have recently had the FT-847 lab repaired and tested on output - which I know are
working ok.

The problem I have is - whichever satellite i try to work, low pass / high pass, SSB or FM, high power
or low power - I am unable to hear my own signal on the downlink and hence so far have no QSO's
....Any suggestions or clues as to what I may be doing wrong or have setup incorrectly...?

Would appreciate any clues / tips here ! :-)
