Is there any way of PERMANENTLY deleting the CWX messages in global profiles, other than deleting all the global profiles and starting afresh? I have asked this before, but didn't get a definitive answer that worked!  Using Flex 6600 version 2.6.1

Well, it sounds simple! I have tried this dozens of times, but they do NOT stay deleted at all. I have been through ALL my Global profiles and deleted ALL the CWX messages, and whilst it appears to "delete", by the time I finish going through them all and check from the beginning again, there they are, staring me in the face!. I have tried deleting and rebooting SDR too, to no avail!  Suffering this in a contest is difficult, because hitting F1 to call CQ can sometimes cause it to revert to the call in the CWX messages, which I don't want. Hopefully this can be fixed at the same time as fixing the power drop to zero when  on CW, intermittent but frequent and very annoying!
   I explained this problem to a local friend who also said it was easy to delete the CWX messages and he then  found exactly the same problem!

Did you save your global profile after making the changes?  If not, the changes will not be permanent.

Tim,,  many thanks.  You are absolutely correct, I didn't!!  I shall try again and report back, with the egg still on my face. I didn't think to do that at all.

Worth a try, but no, they still return!

Hi Roger,

Delete one, for a test, using backspace. Then when it is cleared, hit the space-
bar once. It should stay cleared. I, even, after hitting the space bar once hit
backspace once more and it stayed clear. I checked by closing SmartSDR and
restarting. I suppose it views it like it is being overwritten. I even restarted the
computer to verify, but did not restart the radio, itself. The CW memory stayed
clear after re-starting.

I was getting ready to respond the same.  You have to backspace out the text and then hit <TAB> or <RETURN> to save the new, null value.

Hi Tim.

Well,I have just edited ALL the Fkeys in each profile. I got to the bottom of the list, checked at the top again and they were back!!! The memories cleared, but on returning to the top one again, they were back. Looks like I shall have to delete them all and start over again  creating new ones.

Hi Tim.  Your routine does work, but you must save each individual profile. I didn't realise that. Perhaps it might be good to put instructions in the manual for information  to new owners! Thank goodness I now know how to do it properly!
  Hopefully the power drop off will be fixed soon too, that is really annoying!
Many thanks for your help.

By chance, did you load an older profile that contained what you wanted for
the CWT. If that profile contained the CWX messages, that is maybe what
happened.

I'm pretty sure I went through ALL the profiles and dealt with them all. I am just about to start again however!!  Thanks for the suggestion, it could be I overlooked one I guess. I do have some time to spare (!) now so will try to get this fixed once and for all.

I must have missed one. I went through all the profiles and checked each one. So far I have no CWX messages showing!!  73 de Roger, G3LDI
