OK, let me be very clear about this since I can see how what I said is
misleading.  Many of you may not know me since I've been inactive here for a
while, but I have a bit of satellite experience over the last several years
including some very rare DX.

That said, I am obviously not just listening at 123 MHz.  I know that the
beacon is at 123.323 MHz.  And I know there are variations including
doppler, etc.  When looking for the beacon, I have been looking over several
100 Khz of signal.

I'll be trying again this evening here!
