Hi,
    I've been playing around with Win Warbler and decoding PSK31 signals.  Assuming I have a working computer to rig interface, how do I respond to a PSK31 CQ?  More specifically, what "frequency" do I use?   Do I wait until the person calling CQ is silent, and try to respond on the same "frequency" (I.e. Use Win Warbler to send a signal as close to the frequency of the sender as possible)?   Or is there a standard offset that should be used.

You should respond on the caller's frequency.

When hunting for a CQ, the Net box in the Transmit panel should be checked; this causes the transmit frequency to follow the receive frequency. When you're decoding a CQ, uncheck the Net box to lock down the transmit frequency before responding; this ensures that the QSO won't wander up or down the band due to AFC action.
