Is it off by the side-tone value?

I am very new to Flex (literally this week).  Can you one of you walk me through some steps to validate your thoughts?

Its easy to reproduce.  I used my FTDX3k with no antenna and transmitting at 1 watt on the Flex.  I simiply start CWX and transmit.  I didnt hear anything but I could see on the bandscope of the FTDX3k where my signal was about 40khz off.  I will need to double check this as I am going from memory and could have been more.  I do know however it was just within the transmitted bandwidth being used because I could barely hear a tone.  

I am suspecting its the side tone value... 

What do you guys think?  Im traveling for business and wont be home till tomorrow.
