I finished building a 60m capable antenna yesterday so wanted to set up my Flex 6700 for 60m operation. I'd like to set memory channels for each 60m frequency but can't seem to figure out how to do this.

You could set up each as a global profile.

If you are looking for a quick method to tune a slice to a memorized frequency visit the following post:

I still like the way FRS handled this with the F5000 and hope they will incorporate it into the 6xxx series.

Global profiles work fine for this, but better would be what we had with PowerSDR...successive clicks on the 60-meter band button brought up the next of the five successive frequencies, and around to the first again.  Very neat. Maybe in v2.0?

I've set up profiles for 60 meters in SmartSDR, and labelled them 60-1, 60-2, etc. These will be good for SSB and digital; CW would need a different set of frequencies, of course.

Jim,
I've also done the same thing with Profiles/60M. But it would be great to be able to select 60M, then click SSB and see the 5 freq. as in PSDR. Then select CW and see the other (adjusted) set of 5 freq.
