      After posting the note I spun the VFO then came back and
      set it on 18.096.00 and then tuned the W1AW signal on the
      waterfall display for perfect copy. This time the fldigi QSO
      Frequency display was reading 18097.518 so my rig or
      something may be off a little. It was fun thing to do.
