Why did the powers-that-be decide to use -1.6 mHz as the offset for the 220 band? And it's a minus. Those kinds of minus calculations in your head are sometimes more difficult. You have to stop and think. (Neither math nor thinking rank high as the things I'm good at.) It would seem to me that 1 mHz would have been simpler.

(This a chance for the nerds out there to explain why compuration circuit next to the nitrogen generator in the middle preamp is better able to handle 1.6.)
