6600 Split issue

TomTom Member
When operating split with receive slice A and transmit slice B the signal strength of A decreases when engaging slice B. This just started doing this. I am not sure I am overlooking something or I have an issue.

    Sometimes when you open the 2nd slice the audio output of the 2nd combines with the first and makes it more difficult to hear if you're listening to a weak signal.  I always mute the 2nd slice unless I'm listening to the pileup and the DX signal is strong enough to be heard in the output.  You can also leave the DX signal "centered" between L and R ears (speakers) and move the slice 2 off to the right ear - that often helps when trying to hear both at once.  That is my experience, anyway.  Hope it helps.

    No its not an audio problem. It is very evident when operating split working the  DXpeditions. The signal strength on the A slice drops when opening the B slice to operate split. Very irritating when working weak signals. Never had the problem until a month ago.

    I have noticed this on my 6600M. It is noticeable. Duane is correct about muting, It does help a little, but sometimes you need to listen too. I find that centering is the way to go on you need to hear both. 

    I don't recall any radio I have ever owned (quite a few in 40 years of hamming) dropping off like that....

    one thing to check is the preamp setting which may have been reset to new value when activating new slice for split operations...it may have knocked it down a little
