I can't help but view this thread with a bit of humor, and dare I say, 

Got my Novice ticket in 1959 and remember that with the first 3 or 4 
receivers I had, I was lucky to be within 50 kHz. Even when I got the 
Drake 4B line (wonderful radios!) in 1969, they were calibrated to 1 kHz.

So pardon me for smiling when I see people quibbling about 30 cycles.

My, how times change!   :-)
