Memorize TX bandwidth?

Is it possible to have the memory locations memorize the TX bandwidth with upper and lower limits for each memorized frequency?   This would be useful when operating on 60m channels where the transmitted SSB bandwidth must be reduced to less than 2.8kHz.

That sounds like something that can be done, for now if you create profiles for each channel then call them up as you need to?

It would be a lot more convenient to have both the TX and RX bandwidths stored with each memory location without having to reload profiles for each memory location.  The memory locations already store the RX bandwidth settings.  Hopefully it would be easy to add the TX upper and lower BW limits to each memory location.

Rather than store tx bandwidth, I would prefer that it store my preferred Mic Profile, which includes bandwidth and many other settings.

A possibly simpler software change would be to simply push the RX bandwidth settings in each memory location into the TX bandwidth settings for each memory channel.  This would be an acceptable solution since the RX and TX bandwidth requirements are usually the same.

If you want to automate the process, you can use DDUtil macros to set your TX frequency and to select which Mic Profile you want to use. Program an appropriate mic profile with the bandwidth you want.

But, I simply use the standard memories, and then select the mic profile that keeps my signal in the required bandwidth. I only have a few that are too wide for 60 Meters anyway, but most of mine work fine with 60 Meters.
