Why? Because the TX bandwidth is not mode dependent.  If you want to setup different TX bandwidths for different phone modes, you have to create a Microphone profile for each mode.

For example, I have a normal SSB profile that sets the TX bandwidth from 100-2900k.  I also have a  profile setup for DX/contesting where the TX bandwidth is set from 250-2700k to enhance articulation (increase "talk power").

Tim, I know what you’re saying , I have a mic ssb profile set up for 3K and when I switched to AM it switches to 10 K like it should so apparently it is mode dependent , you would think if I switch back to ssb it should remember to go back to 3K.

Thanks for your help.

To add to Tim's good advice....

Assuming that you are talking about your Transmit Bandwidth, not your Receive bandwidth...

I suggest that you create several standard Mic Profiles:

SSB Rag Chew, ( a standard SSB profile with nice, balanced audio from about 100-3000 Hz and PROC on NOR)

SSB DX,  (A more enhanced audio profile with limits from about 200-2700 Hz and elevated high frequency boost from about 1K, 2K & 4K. and the PROC on DX or DX+)

SSB Contest,  (An even more aggressive profile with audio limits from 300-2600 Hz, Elevated High Frequency boost, and PROC on DX+)

ESSB, (a bandwidth that you are comfortable with and is legal in your country of operation, with nice balanced audio and PROC on NOR, or OFF.)

then add a few more...

AM 6K  (an AM profile with audio limits out to 3K each side)
AM 10K (and AM profile with oudio limits out to 5K each side)
FM Wide (a profile with a standard audio of about 300 Hz to 2.7 KHz)

Save each one with a custom name that you will remember.
Whenever you use that profile on the mode you designed it for, the rig will associate it to that mode and call it back up the next time you use that mode.  

Mic Profiles are your good friends!  You can taylor your audio however you need it and change between different profiles as your operating needs change.  The frequency range suggestions will all vary, depending upon your own particular voice, mic, and operating needs.

Ken, thanks that’s what I’m going to do.
