RS-13 is currently running Mode KA, which are as follows:

145.960 - 146.000  Mode A uplink
21.260 - 21.300    Mode K uplink
29.460 - 29.500    Downlink

The transponder is non inverting.

By the sounds of it, I'd say you heard yourself.  There is a few kHz
discrepency between your uplink and downlink frequencies, but Doppler shift
will account for this.
