I asked the same question and thought Bill, VE7WFG, replied to the list, as
well.  I will repeat his suggestion:

"As far as Hamsat (VO-52) goes this is what I am doing my Tx is 435.2485
LSB and my Rx is 145.9025 USB.
Now you might have to +/- a little bit but that should get you close.

I hope this helps Ed to get you where you want to be the thing to remember
is that the transponder is inverted as the rx frequency 
increases the tx frequency decreases."

I am going to preset my radio with these numbers to see if I am close at
satellite encounter (AOS).  Doppler should be maximum in the plus side then
and drop as the pass continues.  This means that I will need to increase my
Tx frequency to keep on one downlink frequency (remember that Doppler
effects invert in the satellite).

Hope this helps you.
