3.4.21 antenna gain

Before I embarrass myself with another support ticket, it seems like antenna gain settings are not being retained in 3.4.21 when switching bands or antennas. When I return to the previous band or antenna the gain is always reset to zero.

Does anyone else see this? Ideas? Is this a persistence database issue?

    Tim, have you created profiles? I run a simple set of them, others might have a better profile setup. My global profiles, are CW, FT8, SSB... I have only the "Default" Transmit profile.... as in my case everything is full power, processor on or off and bandwidth the same unless I close or open it up. and Mic is my balanced boom mic... I've set my processor the way I like it.

    Start band to band load your profiles each at a time and save starting high and work all the way down to your lowest in each category. Its a lot of saving switching and saving again... Don't reload the old profile until you've saved on each band. move to another mode. I usually don't have enough time to do everything, but when your done export those profiles and keep them... Usually, my SSB CW and FT8 profiles would disappear, but under this version they're always there every morning. So big thumbs up to the Goddess of Persistence, she's alive and well... Start with one mode and band and go through your settings and see if after saving on each band, they're still there!?! Good luck, Erika DD

    Thanks, this was my next step essentially, create new profiles under the new FW. It "just seemed to work" before but maybe they didn't translate well.

    You are not wrong, Tim.. They used to be remembered, now swapping from RX A/B to or from a Ant 1/2 drops them to zero... Very bad in a contest. I have found no way around it.

    Incidentally, it does not normally happen with 2 slices open.

    Thanks Ron! I also received confirmation that this is a bug from the Flex team, with no ETA for a fix quite yet.
