    By its very definition, you need two fully independent RF signal paths to do any type of diversity reception techniques, so if you only have a single antenna, diversity reception is not possible.

    Here is an example of diversity on my 6700 with a yagi and a receive only antenna.    

    - Slice A is using ANT 1 which is a 2el yagi for 40M.  This is the transmit antenna.  (see second picture below)

    - When I clicked DIV on the DSP tab to activate diversity,  slice B was automatically created and slaved to Slice A.  (see second picture below)

    - Slice B is set up to use RX B for the antenna which is my K9AY loop (a  receive only antenna).  You can click on the RX B tag to select a different antenna if you wish. 



    If you look at the audio TAB in the picture below,  you will see:

    - Slice A is automatically set for the LEFT channel

    - Slice B is automatically set for the RIGHT channel

    - Note: if you disable DIV Slice B will be deleted automatically and the audio slider for Slice A will be returned to the center setting.


    I hope this is helpful.....
