Passing positioning array as whiptail -- menu option

I may have asked this before, so forgive OF.
Problem:
I can pass positioning array as -- menu option to whiptail, but it does not show in the whiptail form as an array - only single (first member "lsusb" ) entry / line shows up.



Code:


Code:
DynamicEntry=$(whiptail \
--title "DEBUG Dynamic menu build from file $LINENO" \
--backtitle "Current work in progress file $0 " \
--menu "Setup Options"  $WT_HEIGHT $WT_WIDTH $WT_MENU_HEIGHT \
--default-item "10 DEBUG Enable debug " \
 --cancel-button Finish \
 --ok-button Select \
"${arraySYSTEM[@]}" "${arraySYSTEM[@]}"              \
"$arraySYSTEM[$@]" "$arraySYSTEM[$@]"               \
3>&1 1>&2 2>&3)


Partial terminal output :
Code:
++ whiptail --title 'DEBUG Dynamic menu build from file 4863' --backtitle 'Current work in progress file /usr/bin/raspi-config-DEBUG.sh ' --menu 'Setup Options' 17 80 10 --default-item '10 DEBUG Enable debug ' --cancel-button Finish --ok-button Select 'lsusb

Notes:
I used two different syntaxes and neither one shows up as full array.
Since --menu requires TWO strings I just duplicated SAME entries.



The array is loaded as --menu option correctly , but does not show in menu GUI



What did I missed ?



Thanks for help.
