well, I have monitored several times the downlink and I feel that some
adjustment is necessary on the frequency, at least on my radio. 
I've never been able to get heard, I don't know if it's a QRM problem 
(too many stations uplinking and/or too much power used) or a frequency
problem on my side. I know that if I were the only station uplinking
probably I could forget to adjust my TX frequency.

sure, but in that case it's a U/V transponder, so I could hear
myself on the downlink, as any other LEO, right?

Thanks for hints & links
