    I recently made a contact on 40 meters using a QRP rig with no understanding of frequency location.

    Wrote in my log as "40 M":D

    On my old 40m QRP setup, I have the dial calibrated approximately. If I want exact, I have a "spot" button that turns on the oscillators without transmitting... Then I find it on an old DX440. Other than this, there is no frequency readout whatsoever.

    To clarify, this is using a QRP rig with a limited RX/TX bandwidth of 7.40 - 7.120+/-, and operating within your license privileges.

    Are we required to ask QRG, or is it really that important?

    There are really cheap frequency counters available on aliexpress.com, or maybe even on ebay. Just velcro one to your cub and you'll be good to go.
