Inverting translator (or transponder) inverts the uplink transmision sideband.
USB will become LSB.
The sideband can change several times inside transponder depending on the mixing
Sideband inverts every time when local oscillator is on the upper side of the
signal and output is their difference.  
(145 minus 580 is "minus 435", hence inverted)
