Was thinking of it more as a starting point to start
tuning from, up or down as the case may be (swap vfo
to reverse).

I find a tendency to move off after a 'run' qso but
stop when I hear another station to call, and then
find I didn't move far enough (in the 'excitement'...)
Having said that I never seem to have been 'penalised'
for it...

Hope to work you tomorrow

Stewart Rolfe, GW0ETF
