Hi Freeman,

Actually, it always makes sense to stay on the correct frequency.
If the other station is not tuning correctly, you can still help
the situation since they will need to follow your downlink.

The thing to remember is that you need to do whatever is necessary
to complete the qso even if the other guy is way off. If you
use either computer control or at least tune the highest frequency
link, you still help the "drifting qso" problem even if it isn't
perfect. Fortunately, it doesn't need to be perfect to have fun!
