Re: Why is my K3 off frequency?
Bob McGraw - K4TAX
I routinely perform a frequency calibration on my K3S. The
procedure is outlined in the manual, pages 52 & 53. There is
also a somewhat different procedure which I use, employing the CWT
and SPOT functions. Always use the highest reference frequency
you can receive such as 15 MHz WWV.
As to being 12 Hz too high, could this be the way you tuned in
the net by ear or did you actually set the VFO to display 50.135?
In the FINE mode you can set the frequency to 50.135.000. Now
there is nothing to say this is absolutely correct as indicated by
the display. Correctness depends on the calibration and
adjustment of the REF CAL as found in the CONFIG Menu.
