Tune-up a couple six meter beacons. If you hit the center of a
couple beacons, then you're either all wrong exactly the same way -
or the more likely answer: your receiver's fine. The six meter
beacons are in 50-52.5 Mhz range, pretty close to your 55Mhz, close
When I'm tuning-up the USB dongles, I use six meter beacons, 2 meter
beacons, and air nav beacons. If I average-out their correction I
get to within a couple PPM across the entire band, even up into UHF
satellite. Temperature alone gives me more variation.
