New to Satellite and having problems

I have been reading everything I can find on working Satellites and have 
been only receiving at this point. Since I'm still learning I do not 
want to cause others problems until I feel comfortable.

My problem is that I have been unable to receive a clear signal from the 
new Amsat ECHO and think I must simply be doing something wrong since 
everyone else is having good luck.

I have a Kenwood D-700 and a TRAM 17' colliener VHF/UHF antenna. I 
receive from the ISS like they were next door. But so far only hear 
faint voices in the noise when tuning in the Amsat Echo. I have been 
monitoring 435.300.

Am I just missing something simple?
