SO2R with 6600 V3 and N1MM+

edited April 2020 in Maestro
Im trying to setup a 6600M for SO2R CW with N1mm+ but but no succes. I did it easily 2 years ago with a 6700, but i cant do it this time with 6600M

I found this link, but doesnt work http://www.flexradio.com/downloads/so2r-mode-with-n1mm-for-the-flex-6700-how-to-guide-pdf/

Issue1: 
I select VFOA/ANT1/DAX1 and VFOB/ANT2/DAX2 with FDX and SO2R default selected but everytime i change band  both VFO goes to same band, i cant not keep different bands on each VFO.

Issue2: 
I try with multiflex using a Maestro for second position, i can have different band and second antenna but everytime i TX one radio mute the other one (FDX and SO2R default selected )

Issue3: 
I try to setup N1MM+, all works well but, OTRSP selected on logger and smartSDR CAT show "process:none".

Any pdf or video tutorial about the setup ?? 
Thanks in advance.

    Your issue 1 should not happen.  Something is wrong, sounds like they are both on the same ANT??  I would dive into this deeper.  double check your so2r settings.. cat ports..  make sure 2 instances of the logger are not pointed to the same cat port, or both cat ports are linked to the same antenna etc.

    Looks like ALMOST everything it is working on SO2R  (6600M V3.0.27 & N1MM+)

    The problem it is on selected antennas. 


    I can choose VFOA/TXANT1/RXANT1/DAX1
                          VFOB/TXANT2.............../DAX2

    Each VFO has his own TXANT, but i can not have different RXANT on each VFO. 

    If i select RXANT1 on VFOA and then i try to select RXANT2 for VFOB, both changes to RXANT2.


    Profile SO2R default and FDX are selected. 

    Any ideas how to solve this ???  

    TNX in advance

    The 6600 has two SCU's, so you can align each to a separate receive antenna.  After looking at your video, you have both slices on the same (one) SCU, so when you change the receive antenna on one slice, it also changes on the other slice.

    You need to open a second SCU by opening a second Panadapter.  On the 6600M front panel / Maestro. touch the little carrot on the bottom of the screen. That will open a second panadapter and move the B slice to it.  You can now have a different receive antenna selected for each slice.

    Hi Juan
    I started to commission my new 6600M today. Do you mind sharing the SO2R settings? Will have to go through the same process. 
    Thanks & 73 Holger, ZL3IO/ZM4T
