I might have been close...   You were right Tom.. Thanks !
I went up on 435.230 LSB, and heard myself on 145.913 USB,
 ( and worked WB9YIG EM67 !)
I tried listening around 435.88x - and heard myself, but not via FO-29.
      - I had too much adjacent antenna interference. That don't count.

Maybe I can be better prepared next time.
  Thanks  /;^)
