Softrock Ensemble IF shift

Has anyone figured out how to shift the oscillator frequency in the frequency hopping mode, in order to provide a larger separation from the 1/f noise that is close to the oscillator frequency in the Softrocks?

I think the performance of the frequency agile Softrocks could be improved by moving the oscillator frequency further from the WSPR bands, thus providing a larger "IF" shift than the 1500 Hz that is presently provided by default.

I have played with the Fiq, BFO frequency, and frequency correction dialogs, but haven't found a way to shift the oscillator frequency by about 10 kHz from the WSPR bands to provide for a nice flat noise floor.

Any suggestions are welcome!
