Tonight on VO-52

Tonight I worked YY5FRD on VO-52 (Hamsat).  I'm not sure how often the 
northern United States hears Venezuela on LEO satellites.  But it was 
great to hear him there.

Is it my imagination, or does the frequency of VO-52 periodically "jump" 
about 500 Hz?  I tuned to see if somebody was uplinking with 
outrageously high power, but didn't hear any signal significantly louder 
than the QSOs.  It didn't seem like the usual FMing of an overloaded 
battery because the frequency changed in large discrete jumps.
