The rig has a far better memory than I do.... and want to refresh what few memory cells I have left.
Does the 6500 remember to switch antennas according to what I have previously used for that band?
Or to make it simpler.
If my 80-40 dipole is on Ant A (Blue) then it will remember to switch to Ant A the next time I go to 40 meters.
And if Warc, 10, 15, & 20 are on Ant B (Red) it will remember to switch automagically  to the proper Antenna choice.

I'd rather not test case I'm wrong. LOL

and one more thing, I'd swear that I had a sidetone in my speakers & headphones when operating digital and cw.

But I can't find a sidetone setting. So I must be hallucinating?

Antenna settings are remembered via persistence. You have to be in  cw mode to see the cw/side tone settings under the p/cw tab.
