VO52 questions....

I have been trying for a week to get into the VO52 satellite and have some questions... I can hear people talking and have to constantly manually tune them in in crazy patterns. One persons doppler will go up and another will go down. It is like I am chasing people that are constantly changing their transmit frequency and does not fit a normal doppler change. Another thing is that I cannot tune myself in at all. It is like I am transmitting in the wrong sideband. I am recieving the downlink in USB and it is my understanding that the uplink is supposed to be LSB. The program I am using is SatPC32 that CAT tunes an IC910H into a M2 2MCP14 - M2436CP30 both with right hand polarization. Just trying to get away from the FM Birds and try some new ones and looking for some help to figure out what I may be overlooking or doing wrong.
