I put it down to Doppler weirdness, but yes I have noticed that I've had 
to tune a good bit below - more than I'd expect.  Since my HT only has 
5kHz steps, it's quite hard to judge exactly how many "notches" to 
retune by, but on a high pass I've found that AO-51 is three up, three 
down from its nominal centre frequency and SO-50 is two up, four down...
