I think a few hundred Hz is too much, unless the band is very 
uncrowded.  When the band is busy, somebody is running every 300-400 Hz, 
so if you call that far off, you're right on top of the next station.  
50-100 Hz either way is usually enough to distinguish the beat note, 
without causing too much QRM.
