Are you sure the radio is actually using the -0600kHz part of that 
packet?  If you put in -0500kHz does it actually change the shift?  
Also, if you put -0505KHz, does it make a difference?  The spec only 
says -060 and I suspect the radio may be completely ignoring the 0kHz 
part of what you're transmitting.  Nice for human readability, but not 
part of the (current) standard.

100% agree and stated much better than I have managed so far!
