Mike...

let me give you a sample i ran into trying to catch VU on 80m yesterday.

using WSJT-X  and jt65, i could not hold the qso very well so i requested op to QSY to jt9 and gave him my audio frequency.  could not find each other.  queried the frequency and he sent back "i am on 3576.5 + 1860".  i sent back that HAMSPOTS said i was on3578.84.

with standard setup of waterfall showing 200 to 4kc, how do i tell another too go to another freq. especially on jt9 where wsjt-x does some tricky shifting.  an added feature, if the other op is not using wsjt-x then anything goes.

FLDGI has a nice feature in that you can set waterfall to read either audio or rf frequency of the signals.

what say ?

What kind of QSY message are you sending/receiving?  Can you show an example?
Normally you'd just do it by band.  The offset doesn't really matter.

Mike....

seems i didn't formulate my query very well.  it's not about getting the other op's attention.  i can't figure out how to calculate the desired frequency for the QSY.

I try a message through JTAlert first...no reply then I send an email. Email seems to work about 50% of the time. I find it's best if you can message on JTAlert since it's faster...just gave to be aware you can only do 3 message per minute at 5,20 and 35 seconds and message overwrite if sent again during those periods.
Asking to QSY during a QSO is awkward, has too little info, and requires an acknowledging reply.  You basically never see anybody trying to negotiate a QSY that way.

using latest version of wsjt-x. doing split mode on the rig with full
waterfall to see and do jt65/jt9 at same time.

everything works fine, but i am really confused on how to tell someone
to meet me elsewhere on the band and perhaps switch mode.

some reply with a frequency, but i have no idea where it is, after all
the other guy just may not be using wsjt-x

how do i figure this ???
