Take a look at http://www.amsat.org.uk/iaru/finished_detail.asp?serial=26

There you will find the following wording:

Follow on project from AO40 using AO10/13 spare space frame. Target orbit - 
30,000km apogee - 2,000km perigee 60 deg inc. Target launch in 2005 or 2006 
on a Ariane 5 rocket. 29MHz, 435MHz, 1260/68MHz and 5668 uplinks with 
downlinks on 145MHz, 2400MHz, 24GHz and 47GHz. Also intending to carry 
experimental coherent transponder with 2447MHz uplink and 10450MHz downlink - 
intended to trial P5 ranging experiment. 10 year mission life

sou it actually states 2447 MHz uplink.

As far as I know, the L-band receiver will also work on the X-band downlink, 
if the X-band experimental transponder is in 'linear' mode.
