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...
