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?
