ATU issue

Although I think this is a minor issue I've discovered something.  My radio is unlocked for MARS operation (FLEX-6500) on the band edges, the tune button will not work nor will the ATU properly..  

example:  I tune to 80 meters, LSB, freq 3.999 mHz hit tune, it works... change to 4.000 mHz, LSB tune will not hold, on off very quick.. now I know most wont have an issue.. however an unlocked radio a tune is a tune and should hold the tune so that I can use a remote tuner or hit the ATU button and get it to tune..

Another note, if I switch to USB, leave it at 4.000 mHz it will tune, so there is something right on the band edge that causing this.

Mine won't and I'd bet most cant test this as they do not have an unlocked radio.

Thanks
