I'm not sure what you mean about shifting the BFO.The original message says: "The uBITX is on CWU has a 700 Hz sidetone
set (ie offset) then the dial on the uBITX needs to be at 7.029.300
Mhz so that it is receiving a the Flex with a 700hz audio tone."
If you are working CW at 7030 then why should you have to set the
receive frequency to 7.029.300? That just means you need to know
whether you are in CWL or CWU and do math in your head to know what
frequency you are actually listening to!
Why not just shift the BFO so the receive frequency can remain showing
7030 and you still get your 700hz tone?
This is *exactly* what I am saying. You are doing it with the VFO. You
can do it with the BFO as well! It's why my homemade receivers always
had two BFO frequencies. It was easier to shift the BFO oscillator with
a switched-in capacitor than to try and shift the VFO frequency in an
Apparently the software Michael is using utilizes neither of these
