Default band at power on?

I've done some digging through forum posts but can't quite figure this out. When I turn on my 6300 there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to how it powers up. For example I just turned it on, loaded a profile for 40m SSB, and then exited SmartSDR. When I started SmartSDR again I was on 40m, but there was no slice showing, and nothing in the RX frequency display. Earlier I did the same thing on 20m SSB - loaded a profile, powered down, and then when I powered up again I was at the same frequency but the mode was set to CW. And twice now I have powered up and had two slices open, one on 17m CW and one on 17m SSB, and I don't have a profile for that.

It seems that there should be a default for this, like "default to last loaded profile" or at least restore the last state. Is there a setting I'm missing? Of is this the expected behavior for 1.3.8?

    Doug, my 6500 has the same symptoms. My workaround: I always load one of my profiles after starting the radio.

    Same here, at the moment it is 160m which is not a band I use very often
