Re:fo-20 contacts and ect.

Ah, the yearly , what do I tune the uplink or the downlink discussion.
The best thing to do remains... 
 FOLLOW WHOEVER YOU ARE LISTENING TO. Then when you have the mike tune 
your uplink into that downlink. Before I computer controlled everything
in shack I would start a pass at say
 (on foo birds) around 435.840 I would send a short burst of cw to find
my u/l d/l pair. I would then tune to a QSO I would like to join, making
note of the freq difference and then tune the U/l to about where I need
to be. It takes a little practice. Every year I work field day without
computer control of the freqs or the antennas. It takes me about 2 or 3
days to develop a feeling of where to tune the u/l. To me this is part of
the fun, and skill  of sat work.  Here is Mike's chart again to guess
where to start finding 
yourself ! Of course this changes with doppler.....
