[Skimmertalk] Anomalous skews on 10 meters

Fri Feb 15 17:26:27 EST 2013

Ok, what does this mean... my connections tab has a list of bands that all
say 'no data', the status tab says the rbn is not showing any offsets for
me, and the rbn page just has dashes on all bands for my offsets... but it
does have the list of bands I am sending and the spots are showing... does
that mean I am matching perfectly, or that something is wrong with offset

We're seeing some very anomalous data on frequency calibration on 10 meters
- numerous stations which previously have been tightly calibrated are being
reported as having +0.8 skews.  While we try to figure out what is going on,
please don't waste time recalibrating, unless you have specific reason to
believe that your calibration has changed.
