This topic may have been disgussed before, but I am still not sure that I understand it.
I use a Yaesu FT-818 for SOTA work. It has two CW settings; CW and CWR.
As I understand it, using CW means that an USB signal is modulated with a LF tone at a specific offset from the carrier, e.g. 800 Hz. Using CWR, the tone is modulated on the LSB signal.
Obviously (?) these two signals will be sendt (when transmitting) at two different HF frquencies.
I have noted that regardless of what setting I use (CW or CWR), the dial frequency is the same, probably indicating the imaginary signal carrier frequency. Which seems reasonable - and understandable.
Now to my question: When a CW frequency is given in a SotaWatch Spot, shall I used the CW setting on my radio - or the CWR setting? Because they receive signals at slightly different frequencies.
