I understand that but with signal reports +4 to him and -01 to me, I know he doesn't have a problem hearing me.
Now, why can't he decode me (maybe that should be my question)
6 times in a row last evening he pushed me to a higher 500-1000 freq and after a minute or so I went back above 1000 and called him again, after he called a few more calls I was called back down to his freq again.
This went on for over an hour and finally he went qrt.

It is normal for the Fox to push you up to a higher offset frequency, between 500 - 1000 Hz, if he has not successfully decoded you after 3 cycles in the 0 - 500 Hz frequency slot. At that point, your QSO is in limbo. Your best course of action is to start over by calling him with a TX1 above 1000 Hz.
The SW on your end is working as it should.
