AO-40 Downconverter IF

>Hello all,
>I have recently completed building the WDG-040 2.4 GHz downconverter with a
>144 mHz IF for AO-40 reception on my FT-847. The manual says that the
>converter outputs to 144 mHz, but does not say precisely what 2.4 gHz input
>frequency outputs to 144 mHz.
>In other words, does this mean that 2.4 gHz (even) would come down at 144
>mHz (even) and that 2401 mHz would actually show up at 145 mHz?  Or would
>be more likely that 2401 mHz (the actual satellite TX freqency band) would
>come down to 144 mHz on my receiver.  I hope my question is clear.
>Terry, W0FM
