It should QSY both uplinkn and downlink.  THe downlink will go through 5
QSY's per pass, but the uplink will only go through 0, 1 , or 2 since the
maximum Doppler is only +/- 3 Khz, so you may see 0 tuning on the uplink
if it is a low pass where the doppler begins only at -2 and ends at +2.

The radio can only tune in 5 KHz steps... It should not XMIT on the
downlink either.  THe Mic will XMT on what ever is the PTT band as set by
the front panel.  THe data band XMT band is set by the Satellte MODE.

It works fine here.. but I worked all night on a new version that then has
a DEFAULT for BAND A and band B between passes.  This way, you can make it
go monitor your favorite SIMPLEX channel or repeater between passes.. or
APRS (but that clutters up your map)...

I will post it later today/night...
