60 Meter LSB Frequency issue

I have a recently received Flex 6400M - Regarding 60 Meter operation - I am having an odd issue with the frequency that I can transmit on.  First off - Digital and CW are working as expected.  For each of the 5 channels I have to have the vfo set 100hz below the normal frequency.  IE CH 3 5.357 will not allow transmit  - I have to go to 5.356.9 in order to transmit and on ch 4 I have to go to 5.371.4 in order to xmit and so on.  this obviously put the receiving station off frequency.   this occurs no matter what bandwidth setting I am on.  typically use 2.7 -  and as mentioned above CW and DIGU work as expected.   Anyone else seen this or can confirm this.  I am all up to date on the newest release of software.  thanks Joe

    Your TX BW is to wide. Try to reduce your TX BW by 100 and see if that fixes it

    Bingo - I was changing the receive bandwidth but still had tx at 3K -  I should have known this - maybe I did but forgot.  Welcoming myself to the Mid 50's age group.
    Thanks James !!
