What happened to the Mike boost +20 button?

I have tried two Heil mikes on my 6500--GM5 and Handi mike--and both require having the EQ on and set between plus 6 to 8 across the board with a mike gain of 80 to get acceptable gain. The Beta software had a "plus 20" button that I engaged with a mike gain of 70 with good results. Comp has little diff unless set at very high level so my setting is OFF. With EQ off and mike gain at max I can get only about 15 watts out with drive set at 100.
QSO with K3SOM with 6700 indicated he has mike gain of 80 using balanced input with Heil 781 and comp set at 50.

Am I missing a "mike boost" setting somewhere? K3PD

See my post regarding the reset. If you change modes from Mic to ACC and back again the +20db boost will reset to off!

The good news is the setting is persistent and will be retained when you shutdown the radio but watch out for the reset.
