[CQ-Contest] Dead zero beat pile ups

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
