    We demonstrate scanning over 1.1 nm with a frequency shifting ring source using a Ytterbium doped fiber amplifier (YDFA). It is, to the best of our knowledge, the first time an YDFA has been used in this configuration, and operation in the 1-1.1 µm wavelength range is made possible. We demonstrate a novel timing scheme that suppresses unwanted Q-switching behavior. Finally, using a concatenated numerical amplifier model, we are able to accurately predict the behavior of the source.
