      Then you can ignore it, can't you?

      Perhaps you overanalyze things?

      If you have a particular quirk like filters, then you need to work out your solution.

      I disagree.

      As clear as mud. I don't think you are simplifying anything for a newcomer. Is that USB? LSB? Have you ever had a SSB sked that spec'd "Center frequency of the signal"?

      What is the "center frequency" for PSK? 14070.15 USB seems to be a lot more clear to a newcomer than something more convoluted.
