AO-16 does not normally transmit on S-band. I don't know when the last time
was that it was active.  As I recall it tends to throw the power equation
into negative balance.

Yep, that's the correct spot with an SSB downconverter, +/- a very large
doppler shift.  The signal is not strong, but it's there and doppler
shifting like crazy.
