I was trying out the FDX mode on my 6500, while transmitting JT65 on 40m 
I was trying to receive on 20m at the same time.

The FDX works when I key the transmitter on 40m using the foot switch, I can continue
to receive on 20m during the transmission. However when WSJT-X keys the transmitter
via the CAT command, the receive on 20m is muted.

The WSJT-X is using the CAT method for PTT I am not using a separate COM port just for PTT.

Using latest smart SDR software here, anyone else seeing this or do I have something misconfigured.
