[amsat-bb] UKube-1 Transponder Schedule

That is pretty much the same here. I found it at +15,540 Hz higher on
the up link and just have to "TAP" the "+ / - " keys occasionally during
the pass. I get the strongest signals using RHCP on the up link and
LHCP on the down.
The workaround for the 12 satellite limit on SatPC32 is to create a
separate group for FM satellites. I have STANDARD and FM groups.
Paul and I hooked up on FUNcube-2/UKube-1 during the 17:15 UTC pass. That
was my first contact on this bird.
Unlike AO-73, I found the transponder uplink to be stable during the pass,
changing only a few hundred hertz beyond Doppler corrections, so I was able
to use full UL/DL Doppler correction, always hearing my downlink. In the
case of my IC-9100, I found the uplink to be 14.3 KHz higher than specified.
My UL corrected Doppler.sqf file for SatPC32 contains the following entries
for CW, Voice, and Telemetry:
73, Bob, WB4SON
