Linear satellites



I am somewhat new to satellites, but I have a question. I use a computer
program to help with Doppler shift and to manage satellite memories. On AO-7
and  VO-52 I have the following set as the middle of the pass band.  This is
what I set into the radio VFO.  I have noticed that I have to adjust the
transmitter frequency.  I thought that the TX and RX would track each other?


 

Does the relationship between TX and RX frequencies on the satellite change?


If I am setting the wrong base frequency into my VFO's for these two
satellites, what are better frequencies to use?

 

Thanks
