Would you be kind enough to check if an offset of -0.6M works
Or the info I have that was tested by Mike works on this link
He tested it so I have no reason to believe it does not work

But since we are trying to get something a bit more standard going it helps
to check and at least be as compatible as possible

;LA5BR    *111111z6024.76N/00521.64Er145.750MHz T097 -0505kHz
Gives me an offset of 0.500MHz and also change the step to 5kHz

;LA5BR    *111111z6024.76N/00521.64Er145.750MHz T097 -0515kHz
;LA5BR    *111111z6024.76N/00521.64Er145.750MHz T097 -0525kHz
Gives me an error and does not QSY

;LA5BR    *111111z6024.76N/00521.64Er145.750MHz T097 -0550kHz

;LA5BR    *111111z6024.76N/00521.64Er145.750MHz T097 -055

;LA5BR    *111111z6024.76N/00521.64Er145.750MHz T097 -05
Works but is "rounded" up to be 0.600MHz
