[amsat-bb] Correct up-link frequency for PO-101 (Diwata-2)

I used these frequencies from the @Diwata2PH Twitter home page:
Uplink 437.500 MHz, 141.3 Hz CTCSS
Downlink 145.900 MHz

I had no trouble getting into PO-101 on three passes during Field Day.  I was able to talk to myself for all three passes for the entire pass.

Of course, I was in Copper Center, Alaska and nobody else within range was heard.

My point is that these frequencies worked, so the AMSAT website and their Twitter home page are most likely correct.  My station was a standard Arrow, IC-9700, with manual tuning.

    On the AMSAT FM Satellite Frequency Summary it lists the
    up-link frequency for PO-101 (Diwata-2) as 437.500 MHz.
    On the PHL Microsat website, the up-link frequency is
    listed as 437.7 MHz.?? Which is correct??? I tried to
    work PO-101 during Field Day yesterday and had no
    success getting in with my radio set to 437.500 MHz,
    and Doppler-shift adjusted near values.?? Of course,
    being Field Day, I could have just been 'out-gunned'.
    I do wonder, though.
