I cannot find any memory to store the Tx BW for 60M.
The 60M band requires 2.8Khz max.
On the other HF bands I typically use 3.3Khz, so when I switch to 60M I have to remember to change the BW before I transmit.
Is there somewhere this can be saved, like Memory or Profile?

User profile. Create a new one, call it 2-8k or 60m, then go into options and set the low pass to 2800 and whatever the high pass you want and then do Update 2-8k in the User profiles section.

The User profile stores the Options menu settings.

This would required repeating this procedure 5x , one for each channel, and naming them appropriately.

No the User profile is a “global” state, when you select a profile all the Options settings are applied.

You would select the profile, switch to 60m and then just operate on whatever slot you want.

I have multiple User profiles, one for each bandwidth mode I operate, AM is 5kHz but also has reduced Drive that is saved, 5kHz SSB, 4kHz, 3-5kHz, 3kHz and DX which is my 2.8

Then in the Proc profiles, which are unfortunately not tied into a User profile, I have processing and EQ set for wide band at 5kHz, AM that uses increased clipper level, and 3kHz that is optimized for narrow and then DX with processing jacked up and EQ sharpened.

I've been stuck in the Flex Profile procedure mode.
The light went off when I went to 60m, where I had all 5 channels previously stored in Memory, and saw the Blue dots at the assigned 60m channel frequencies.
Clicking on any one of the dots set the transceiver to the correct channel and bandwidth.

Is there a list stating which parameters are saved with the profiles, Global; or otherwise?
I will also have a need to create profiles that will allow me to drive my RF 2K+ at reduced powers on all bands.

Your answers and comments have been most helpful and instructive.

Happy 4th Tom W3FRG

The Expert tab in the Options section has the gain per band. One thing to be aware of with that, you can’t adjust them while transmitting.

You have to send a TUN signal, be sure TUN is maxed out, read the power, then adjust for the band you are on.

Each adjust needs a WRITE in the Expert tab to be clicked to send the change to the firmware, then TUN again, test and adjust.

You have to do that band by band as they are not all even.

You don’t need to do that per user profile saved as it’s a firmware thing so it’s persistent across modes once you set it.

There’s no list that I’m aware of, but User profiles seem to capture the size and placement of the window, all the gain levels and volume levels and most of the Options menu settings.

I think I run mine at 23W or so max to drive my RF2k-S just so I don’t overshoot by accident. It’s a good combo.

Excellent description.
One more question, can multiple Profiles be written for any one band?
As an example, can a profile for 80m be written that allows full output for Barefoot ops and one written reducing the RF Power out to 23w for use with an amplifier.
They would be : 80mBF and one named 80mAmp
I tried this approach but had no success, but it may nave some restrictions in naming??

Congrats on your RF2K-S.
