Mike I find myself , especially on strong signals to call the first time
off by 500hz or more because when I'm tuning across the band I have the rx
open to 2.8 khz. I try to be carefull to get on freq and sometimes in the
Heat of calling don't get there the first time, I suspect that some of the
newbies might not have 500hz filters. ??
