Actually, 429 MHz is outside of the relevant amateur-satellite service
world wide frequency allocation which is at 435 - 438 MHz, on a secondary
basis.

The amateur service and amateur-satellite service are, indeed, separate and
distinct radiocommunication services, although they have a great deal in
common.  

For more information on the use of frequencies in the amateur satellite
service, suggest reading the article at:

Hope this helps.
