I'm sure many have done this with a K3.
You need CAT to get the best from a panoramic display.
The frequencies will coincide if you have setup the software properly with the radio and software talking to each other. There are
settings to eliminate any frequency offset. I've only used HDSDR https://sites.google.com/site/g4zfqradio/hdsdr-if-pano but any
software with panadaptor settings should do the same. There must be descriptions of exactly how to set a K3 somewhere on the web.
When the frequency displays coincide then I do not see a problem with the tuned frequency offset although the display can be
manipulated to have the tuned frequency more central.
If you do not use CAT then an approximation may be made by manipulating the LO and offset settings in the software to make the tuned
frequency 0 on the panadapter. Maybe then setting the individual mode offsets will work, manually altering the mode of the software.
I have never tried this.
And, more simply, there is Duncan's way although I'm not sure how he copes with a Softrock LO so close to centre.
