Everybody is different as to there common mistakes, but I notice that
mine seems to always be that I put a decimal in the frequency when I
manually enter modifications with notepad. If you examine very closely I'll
bet find that you are making a very subtle change that is easily
overlooked. But I could be wrong after all I'm just an Amateur.
