I use my 6500 on MARS nets where we send both voice and digital traffic
When on these nets I put the radio on DAX and use the wonderful feature that when you key via PTT it switches to whatever mic is selected. This is very convienent. The ony issue is I dont want eq on digital channels  and a wind up having t remember to shut it off and put it back on when switching backand foth... this greatly reduces the benefit of an otherwise awesome way to operate.

I have one work around I have thought about, but it is not elegant. I could put an external equalizer on the mic and leave the internal equalizer set to off. I have a little mixer I could do this with... Feels like their should be a better way.

I also thought of a software fix... if the equalizer panel that two switches for TX  Tx PTT and Tx Cat you could have different setting for digital and voice.

Someone else must have had this issue so I thought I would ask the experts on the net.

The EQ is bypassed on DIGx modes regardless if PTT is asserted and you are using the override function to operate voice when in DIGx.
