I need some quidelines on how to set the EQ profiles for SSB, RX and TX on my Flex 6500 under Ver 1.3.
I understand there are different settings for DX and others for rag chewing?
Thanks for you alls help.
I've been fiddling with these settings for the last few evenings while supporting a local net. I use a Heil PR781 microphone. Listeners preferred equalization that was flat (0) from DC to about 1K, then sharply emphasized at higher frequencies up to the top.
While I can't hear it from my operating position, they tell me that this sort of equalization creates a voice signal that is more readable than a simple flat response, with this mic. Note that this setting is quite a bit different from the default setting for this mic.
I turn voice processing on, but leave the slider at the "normal" position. This compresses the voice signal some, but not so much that it contains compression artifacts.
My 2 cents.
If you would like more advice after reading these posts, please contact me.

The marvelous eq ,proc, dexp, and that "hand mike. " on your flex. Will not provide that. Ultimate audio quality that some audio guys listen for .
Secondly. Understanding the first point puts you into looking for what will. . Some use w2ihy gear. ( the easiest to get reliable results) Some use multiple rack gear pieces. ( loads of stuff out there that in combination work) Some use electronic processing. (Every possibility known to man ) And in very rare times some use nothing at all As their voice is a perfect audio combination. (Very rare. )
So there is no easy. Way to tell you what to do
As for the settings in the flex. They are ok and through experimentation. You can figure out a plausible result.
Which usually can be similar to someone's effort but different because it is you. Asking "how do I sound". Will result in some pretty startling statements. Since most of us cannot hear. Your in trouble
As for mikes (one of the keys to the palace.) Don't buy until you have listened to as many as you can. Un processed or eq ed
Use whatever you first got for the interim and look to move on .
There are far better selections for audio mikes out there than what the casual ham uses . And trying to make them work for you is part of the fun of audio.
One absolute necessity is to produce enough audio out of the mike to be able to work with it. Hence a preamp usually is the first stage after the mike. . All the mikes tell you in their specs what the output is. Most need that pre amp.
Sometime during this selection and play time you will also learn about that magic. 0 DBM. Spot. And all those levels that have to be correct .
The flex produces fantastic audio. Right up there with the best. Radios out there
Please excuse me. As I'm back to the headset and monitoring
The perfect settings profile. I'm still looking
As for rec. eq I only use that for cw.
