I'm a little perplexed. When the cluster spot says 14008.1, how often is
the station really there, rather than at 14008.14 or 14008.06? How many
of our radios are *that* well calibrated.
Also, how far off zero-beat is enough? I find Iam almost always off
zero-beat when I click on a station.
73, Pete N4ZR
