 Maybe we can get a consensus here, now that the people who aren't 
 really interested in satellites have left.  :-)

Interesting debate.

My 2 pence ( 3 cents but depreciatng rapidly)

With a transponder as wide as AO-40 it's easy to listen and find a spot with 
no QSOs. - Usually lower than the beacon.

Keep your TX on the appropriate frequency and do not sweep the band.

For Example. Tonights pass the satellite will be increasing its range rapidly.
I have a note stuck to the wall which says

Beacon around 2401.300?    Then 435.700 = 2401.270

I'll add a note for Beacon on 323 and 345  later.

As they say, It works for me and I only have to swish my RX +/- 5k at most.
