Hi,

I did the calibration on V6 with the stock software and it did not remember of show the previous cal numbers for the VFO. I had to write them down. As I recall the BFO was less troublesome. I might recall that wrong. I was wrong once before you know ;)

The short answer is yes.  The longer answer is that as long as you use the same Nano, the values are stored in the EEPROM area that is separate from the program area.  If you do swap out the Nano, then you need to recalibrate.  The values used before can be loaded as the calibration data to start.  What I am trying to say is that if you load the CEC software on top of the stock software in the Nano that was used for calibration.
Remember that to get the best calibration for the frequency, you should set the BFO tuning value lower than normal, zero beat to calibrate, then set the BFO tuning back to be centered between 300 and 3000 Hz.
Question for a v6 owner, does the new software show you the current calibration/tuning value, or does it go back to default as all of the prior stock versions did?  If the latter, then I other than writing down the value, there is no way to save it for later display.
