Hi John, You can change the KX2’s coarse tuning rate on a per-mode basis using the VFO CRS menu entry. In CW mode the default is 0.1 kHz, but you can set it to something higher. This would allow you to QSY much more quickly.
Another trick: Whenever the OFS knob’s LEDs are both off (RIT and B), the control does coarse control of VFO A. Assuming RATE is set to 10 Hz, this means you can do fine tuning with VFO A and coarse tuning with OFS -- no switch taps needed.
