    Have you got the repeater shift function switched on (you should see a little "+" or "-" symbol)?

    I wasn't aware that it worked on HF, but it might be worth checking.

    ... or if you are operating in memory mode. Have you got split frequencies programmed into the same memory channel?

    Might be the dual VFO; might be that the XIT (Transmit Incremental Tuning) is on; might be something to do with the memory. Hard to say; do you have the operator's manual for the radio? What does it say?
