Is there a method to save a global profile without save the freq?

Being able to to apply a saved global profile without the saved freq being applied? This would be very helpful in pactor peer to peer when transmitting voice and data on the same freq (MARS). The configuration from voice to data (scs dr-7400 hardware modem) and back is quit a few clicks and prone to errors. It would nice to be able to just change profile between modes

No.  GLobal profiles are designed to save the radio "state" of which the number of slices and their frequencies are a paramount factor.  Have you tried using TX profiles for this?

It would be a nice feature to be able to edit a profile to exclude specific items.

Sounds like 2 global profiles with differant settings but the same frequency in both would do what your asking, but maybe i'm not understanding  something.

The issue with the transmit profile is that it does not include band or bandwidth . An example would be if you were talking on a frequency and you want to send a pactor peer to peer message you have to go to digiu, five on bandwidth and several other settings change (eq, acc) proceed with your digital transmission then switch back to the voice band (USB in this case) and bandwidth (2.7) and turn the eq and mic back on. it would be nice to have all of this and just one pull down.

I do what you are wanting to do when I go between SSB, PSK and JT. I saved seperate global profiles for all three modes that store the proper settings including bandwidth for each and I can change frequencies any time after selecting one or just store the proper frequencies in each. Even if you do not use the same frequencies on every mars net,  you can still save global profiles for that particular net to jump back and forth between voice and digital by just selecting the correct global profile.

 Modify and save the frequency in the global profile before the start of the net each time.

Maybe profile settings selectable by slice?  Then you could have 2 slices open..  One for your  pactor message setup and the other for your particular SSB preferences?  Then its just a matter of selecting the TX slice.

FRStacks is more flexable in saving and recalling  memories and favorites, but alas, no way to save all of the parameters related to a mode without also saving the frequency.
