eliminate a lot of unnecessary mutli-station dead zero-beat pileup QRM near
x.040 that unnecessarily wastes time.

One other comment:

If you wind up missing a Q after calling someone, and you QSY to CQ for
yourself, PLEASE QSY ENOUGH as to not be only a few hundred HURTZ from the
QSO that you just missed!!  ;o/  ;o/  ;o/  I had two guys do this to me
last week when I wound up responding to someone else: they shifted what, to
them, may have been "far enough" in that they no longer heard ME: but they
wound up being within both MY passband, and at least once in the passband
of the other guy I was working, and created QRM to copy through.

Do like a regular Sprint would require: shift a FULL KILOHURTZ, not merely
a few hundred hurtz.
