Yes it's a problem, normally in S&P i use a 250Hz filter but it
is almost impossible in RUN, had to use 800 in the last WPX.
Same thing happen on RTTY and I have a macro telling:
sri you are off off freq.
Is it because some guys use RIT and forget to have it off or
lot of guys use wide filter and dont know or to zero beat?

I noticed in the WPX CW test that a fair number of stations were way off my
xmit frequency. This is the first time I recall making a mental note of
this occurring in a contest. I had my skirts set at 300 and then 500. Some
were off enough that I thought it was adjacent QRM till I tuned to them and
found they were calling me.
I understand the benefits of not being zero beat to differentiate yourself
from the pack. Is this a case of poor operating, forgetting about your rit
or all of the above?
Anyone else notice this?
