Generally suggest 145.825MHz. Just leave it there, and you'll pick up all the 1200 baud satellites. GO-32 is on 435.225 (nominal), not 435.325. May have been a typo somewhere. If you can't copy 9600 baud, it doesn't matter anyway.
I'm beta testing a program, ASatLogger, by Bill Diaz, which (along with another $ tracking program) will allow you to swap between satellite and terrestrial APRS whenever a satellite goes overhead. Very cool.
It's still a bit rugged to operate.
