Transmit power slider not staying when I switch slices with different TX antennas.

I am having an issue where its not working as I would expect. Not sure if its a bug or not.

I am switching between two slices on two different bands and when I adjust power level to max it does not stay there after moving the TX to another slice and coming back. Both slices have same issue.  Note that slice A (bottom) is on ANT2 for transmit and slice B is on ANT 1

If I put both slices on ANT 1 for TX it works fine.

I think I see what is happening,
when switching make sure the transmit profile does not change,,if the profile changes then that will change trans power setting if that profile is set for that.

Odd. I would not think it should load profiles each time.

Profile loads are triggered by radio state changes.

If you change a power level on one antenna when using a particular Transmit Profile that is linked to that antenna, then you need to save that Transmit profile, or it may not remember the change the next time you change antennas, because it loads the profile that is associated with that antenna.
