If you are too high in the pass band / waterfall you can adjust the 
center frequency down a few hundred Hz in the settings file.  Or just 
tune the VFO of the 10m radio a little until you are where you want to 
be on the waterfall.

I have noticed the ROBOT-Beacon does turn on the NO-84 transmitter at 
times.  If you are not turning the satellite on, use more power. 40- 80 
watts works for me most of the time.  Expect your signal to be 
noticeably weaker than the telemetry down at 312Hz.

I made the last pass but was maybe 2KC higher. Also, I only see myself
when the Robot-Beacon comes on.

Saw two other guys calling CQ .. Looks like they too were using DopplerPSK

One was KC4LS btw
