We just been given access to 60m here in EI I have file EU02 Loaded on my 6500 but I can not TX anywhere on the 60m band ???
What do I need to do to enable it,
EU-02 is fine. At the moment there are no channel markers so there's a bit of guesswork involved. Try just sliding the slice tune passband highlight up and down the whole 60m band and you will see the TX ready/not ready indicator (bottom right) and also the tune button changing as you get to a TX-able segment.

You may need a TURF file from your dealer to enable the new bands. Contact your EU dealer and they can assist.
The TURF file is specific to the radio serial number and is used to set the bandplan for the region.
If you have the correct TURF file then see this thread for more info.https://community.flexradio.com/flexradio/topics/60m-out-of-band-tx
I am pretty certain you wont need this, but, if you do end up needing a new turf file then Klaus is da man. He will need your specific model number and unit serial number bcause I think the turf file is locked by unit serial number. He emailed me a new turf the same working day when I needed one last year. His contact details below :-
SDR-Funktechnik GmbHTel.: (+49) 4751 900501
we have been granted 5351.5 to 5366.5 kHz
and I can only TX on 5354.0 - 5358.0 CW
not that I plan to do too much on 60m but I would like to do some JT65 but I can't TX on the part of the band that has activity on it,
Trevor, did you solve this problem or find a solution somewhere else?
I'm running into the same problem - only cw will work (TX ready), no other mode will show TX ready on any channel even by sweeping with USB bandwidth set to less than 2.8 kHz.
SSDR is 126.96.36.199, location is US, rig is 6500
Thanks Stan. I agree, any hint of out of band (channel in this case) causes the problem. So I have now stumbled across the source of my problem.
From everything written so far, it was not made clear what is required. I had been narrowing the bandwidth in the mode selection on the slice, e.g. using less than 3 kHz, something like 2.9 or 2.7, etc. This did not work - still no TX.
Then as I was trying anything else I could, I found that in the "Phone" panel on the right column, the Highcut was set to 3100 ! Reducing this to 3000 or less solved the problem.
Looks like I am up and running. Too bad no one suggested checking the low cut - high cut settings, which is the transmit bandwidth = only referring to bandwidth, which I may have mistakenly interpreted as the BW setting in the slice receiver.
Hope this helps others, but thanks for your reply.
P.S. the receive BW in the slice receiver seems to be happy with any "receive" BW setting, i.e. 4kHz.
