Hi all,
After many delays I have set up my President Grant 2 that I bought used. It had the mod done. Trying to get on the USB 305 net I was told that my frequency is low . The set was sold without any warranty.

I am in SE london living on my steel boat which does not help for antenna height, a sirio dipole on a 20 ft aluminium pole, so a London company would be ideal!

First of all who and how many reckon you was off frequency on that 305 net ?, I live not far from that lot who regularly go on it and most of the time most of them are off frequency themselves, so I wouldn't listen to them too much, also some of them use Amateur kit and not pure CB stuff so you always get those remarks from people who use Amateur kit

Even the amateur kit isn't guaranteed to be on frequency. My TS480 was lmost 250Hz off on the 10m band until I fitted a TXCO, my TS590s was a bit better but not a lot. The Icom 7000, Icom 7300 and Flex 6500 were all bang on but then apart from the Flex they come with a TXCO as standard.

I remember a chat with people in Bridlington on 11m. I was on my Icom 7000 which was bang on and I knew it was because I had test equipment. They were all telling me I was off frequency. Turns out they'd all taken their kit to the local golden screwdriver, a person I know who had very little knowledge and was tuning them by listening to them by ear with a Yaesu FT897 which itself was way off. So the whole town was transmitting off by the same amount but all thinking they were bang on frequency because everyone's radio was off by the same amount.
