[TenTec] MMRTTY+ Omni 6 question

This may not be the right place to ask, but as there is a lot of
technical talent here, let me give it a shot...
When I was using the Ka-Gold program and a KAM+ TNC for rag chewing and
using Writelog for contesting (in all cases using 'true' FSK), once I
properly tuned in the station and then went to respond (transmit), I was
automatically netted or on the proper frequency and did not have to use
RIT or XIT.
Currently I am switching over to using MMRTTY. When I correctly tune in
a station and then go to respond, I am -not- exactly on the proper
Omni 6 conditions: FSK mode, 500 Hz filter engaged, pass band tuning
control between 2 and 3 o'clock (same place it was for years with
Ka-Gold and Writelog). MMRTTY using EXTFSK for 'true' FSK.
I realize that MMRTTY has a 'net' control but that it is only active if
you are transmitting AFSK -- and I am not. I also pressed the "HAM"
button in MMRTTY which sets the shift to 170 Hz and the mark to 2125 Hz,
but this then makes the received signal go off freq a bit (that is, the
"cross-pattern" tuning indicator is not giving a cross anymore, have to
re-tune the receiver and then the copy (and cross) is OK again), but the
MMRTTY window that formerly read '2125' does not; it reads around ~
1800 -1870 Hz and I am no longer transmitting on the received station's
Is there something in MMRTTY that will let me do what I want; that is,
be automatically netted like in the good old Ka-Gold and Writelog days?
Hopefully I have described the issue properly and someone will have some
words of wisdom <grin>
73 and thanks in advance,
