Thanks for that. I had not thought of looking there so it was appreciated.

I had quoted an approximate frequency that was displayed when the keying gave a
reasonable tone. I can only read Morse when I know what I am receiving and the
speed is very low!

I just tried again and tuned for zero beat when it was not keying. It now shows
1296.845.8 which is very close to the frequency given on that web page. I am now
more confident than I was before that my calibration seems to be as good as I
need it to be as I only use SSB on that band.

I am now hoping to be able to get more QSOs with some of you on 23 cms. I have
worked a few G stations on the band and during VHF NFD was getting a very strong
signal from EI9E/P which I also worked on 6 m, 2 m and 70 cms. Best DX so far
has been DB6NT, out of 6 countries worked, but I am still looking for a GW as
that should be relatively easy if someone is in a good location.
