Pete, no doubt it's easy enough for the calling operator to implement 
the tweak on the fly.  But, the benefit for having it occur 
automatically would be to the CQing station who would be less likely to 
have multiple stations calling him all at once, zero-beat his frequency. 
  Operators who omit the "tweak" step cause the problem for the CQer and 
an automatic random offset would be step toward eliminating such skimmer
