On the 3 January 2003 0756 UTC pass of Saudisat 1C I was able to hear
my own uplink on the downlink. I called CQ with no response - 
unfortunately it's a little late/early here in the US.

I was using the published 145.850 MHz uplink with a 67hz tone and
the 436.800 MHz downlink for center frequencies. I was using the keps
for "Payload C" - object 27607 from .

You can find two MP3 captures on my website listed below under
the "Satellite Sounds" link.

  I am using Japanese version of IC-821. In my case, I can set the
tone to 67Hz with this steps.

(1) Set 70cm FM at Main band.
(2) Push [TONE] button. "T" mark will be turned on.
(3) Push [SPCH/SET] button more than 1 sec. "Set" will be on Display.
(4) Pust [TONE] button. "88.5Hz" will be displayed.
(5) Tune the main knob and select "67Hz".
(6) Push [SPCH/SET] button.

  Sorry I do not know about the european version....
