Default Dx 2547 frequency question

DX 2547 FREQUENCY QUESTION
Bought a radio from a GI Joe's. Had it tuned and peaked. What I notice is the receive frequency on channel 20 says 27.2053 without the clarifier on and the transmit on it is 27.2054. Is this normal or didn't he tune this? Don't mind spending the extra money if they do the job. Clarifier will allow me to change the receive on 20 to 27.2050 but transmit still shows 27.2054. Is this all normal? Thanks Ron

Now just imagine if you would have bought a legal radio and left it alone?
You'd be talking to the same people and just as far as you are now and probably wouldn't have any flaws to worry about, and...you would have a few more $$ in your pocket.
But then that's what the "chop shops" do to make a living, right?

All bull aside, the difference from 27.2050 to 27.2053 will be hardly noticeable, and will probably only make your OCD senses tingle because the frequency counter isn't dead on..

I for one never trust a built in freq counter/display. As long as it's close, it's good enough.. Even on Amateur Radio our freqs don't always hold 100% dead on where they are "Supposed" to be, and some deviation is normal.
