Hi Pop, VU2POP

For VUSAT you says Uplink freq 435.25 MHz but what is please the beginning
and the end of the nominal passband for the uplink ?

Same question for downlink.

Since you says the down link is 145.90 MHz ,one beacon is at 145.860 MHz
and the other one is at 145.940 MHz I argue that the downlink passband
should be about 80 KHz large.

It is correct ?

Where to get more info about VUSAT in order to know the TLM format
and how to decode the data ?

In my opinion the FM use should not be allowed in a linear transponder in
wich CW and SSB modes are operating as this was for good reason the
AMSAT roule for all satellites carring linear transponders since OSCAR-6

Another point to clarify is that you says to use USB but for wath for the
uplink ?

If I must use USB for the uplink it means that the VUSAT transponder having
to translate me USB in 2 meters is a non inverting type and this is bad for
doppler compensation because both uplink and downlink doppler adds istead
of subtract.

I route the above questions to William as well wich is the VUSAT transponder

Tanks for your informations and finger crossed for VUSAT
