What is the procedure to calibrate the frequency of a 6600M running 2.2.8?

I discovered that my brand new 6600M is slightly off frequency.  Other posts to this site describe the same problem on other flex models and mention a calibration procedure, but none says what the procedure is or where to find it.

I would appreciate it of someone would describe the procedure to tell whee to find it.
Thanks in advance,

On the radio screen Press MENU.
On the left side of the screen a list will appear.
Press Radio

Under Frequency Offset Press Start.
The radio will now automatically zero beat to the WWV station selected.

Hope this solves your problem.

You have to have antenna connected to antenna 1. Found out the hard way it would not work off of antenna 2

Good point.  I'm totally new to Flex and sometimes don't realize exactly what's happening.  Thanks,
