I think the problem started from this "official" site[1] where the
frequency is listed as 437.700 MHz.

According to the twiiter account of Diwata-2 satellite[2] this is an old
site and needs update.

The right frequency is the one coordinated by IARU[3] and also listed in
the description of the twitter account of Diwata-2[4] and it is indeed
437.500 MHz.
