1khz difference between 2 uncalibrated Tcvrs is NOT off frequency, to any normal semi intelligent radio operator & it's for that reason we have RIT's.
Next time someone tells you you are off frequency apologise, tell them your transmitter has obviously not been calibrated as perfectly as theirs & then ask when their frequency meter was last calibrated & to what tolerances & how long the calibrator gave it a guarantee for & then go QRT, because anyone with a level of educational retardation that prevents from using the RIT is not worth a QSO with.
