[Skimmertalk] Calibrating your QSR1 with CWSkimmer Server

Sat May 29 11:55:13 PDT 2010

Since clusters only show 100hz steps if you are +/-50hz on 10m you will be
closer on the lower bands.  I would say to call cq qrpp on 10m and calibrate
to that rather than trying to tune in random stations and compare to another
rx.  That should get it as close as your transmitter is and let you control
the test instead of waiting to compare to something else.
