CW: The display shows the zero beat. The receiver is offset from the transmit frequency.

In early transceivers such as the Corsair, Omni V, Paragon and Delta II this offset was fixed, usually 750 HZ.

Omni VI, Pegasus, Jupiter, Orion and Orion II:

CW offset is the same as the side tone.

Orion and Orion II
