Don't forget to account for the Doppler shift when listening.

Quote:
Tune the receiver higher in frequency to account for the Doppler shift - start with 437.333 MHz
Coordinate with your friend or the antenna to reorient the antenna elevation and azimuth each minute during the pass
Slowly tune the frequency around the 432.322 at the start of the pass, biasing your sweep toward 437.320 MHz
When the pass is half way over, the Doppler shift is zero, and the receiver should be tuned to 437.320 MHz
Continue to lower the frequency toward the end of the pass, ending about 437.307 MHz
