transmit and receive frequency question and more from a newbie.

I am newbie running WSPR 2.11 with a Yaesu 897D and a ZLP interface. Still trying to get the bugs worked out. Receive works fine but having trouble on the transmit. I have the cat set up so when I change bands it changes on the radio also. The receive part is working fine. When transmitting the frequency does not go where it needs to be. On 40 meters the receive frequency is 7.0386 but on transmit when the mode is set on user-u digital it stays the same. When on usb it changes to 7.0379.

When I first started using the WSRP program it would change automaticaly to the right frequency, 7.0401 when transmiting.

I have restarted everything and even reinstalled the software. I have tried version 2.0 also. What am I doing wrong?

Also what kind of sound should I be hearing from the soundcard when transmitting.? I am hearing a steady high pitched tone when transmitting and the same tone when wspr is in idle and I press the tune button. Is this right?

I find WSPR facinating and I hope to get it working someday!
