I've used 437.500 as the center uplink frequency on the three PO-101 passes that I've worked to date. On all passes, I was able to get into the bird with 5W or less. On the second pass, I had the bird all to myself, and I was able to get in well with 0.5W, at least with no competition.

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.
