Just starting to make CW QSO's.  If some tells me to meet them on 40 meters, 7.050 kz, should I set my transmiter at 7.050 and have my receiver at 7,050,700 hz presumming we both use a 700 hz tone ? using the RIT.

Thanks

If you're using separate transmitter and receiver,
yes. If you're using a transceiver, the offset
will be taken care of for you; you don't normally
need to engage the 'RIT'.

As a practical matter, if the agreed-upon frequency is 7050, you will hear him anywhere from about 7047 up to about 7053 - and maybe even more on either side, depending on your receiver's characteristics and the accuracy of the dial/display calibration.  The idea would be to find each other and chat - that's the fun part.

If you happen to be listening for him, and his signal happens to be zero-beat with your listening frequency, you won't hear him at all unless he's very strong, or you happen to bump the RIT or tuning knob.
