The band crystals may be aging. I found my 40 meter crystal worked best
if I moved it about 2 khz from where it was supposed to be and then used
the N4PY calibration procedure to bring it back it.
You might want to play around with each trimmer for each band crystal.
If you can find a place where the crystal no longer runs, move the
trimmer quite a bit past where the crystals starts running again.

I installed the N4PY chip which allows me to bring display and output together. The new chip made this a very different and enjoyable radio and the off freq. nuisance was gone.
