ANT1 and ANT2 Problem

    Hello all ---

    Still no joy from Flex on the USB Cables issue with SLICE as a source.

    Meanwhile, my Maestro on-off switch has failed. I cannot turn the Maestro on using the switch. I have to unplug the 12 VDC and then plug it in again to start the Maestro. This is the third time this switch has failed (been repaired two times before). My Maestro has been back and forth to Flex so much that they had to give me a new shipping carton. The old one wore out in the UPS trucks.

    Hi Ralph

    I have put a new topic up for this problem as I couldn't find this thread after reading it some time ago.

    I'm in the same position too that I want the ant to stay with the slice and be fixed.

    Assume you have had no feedback about a fix?

    I would hope that they would at least acknowledge it.

    I raised a ticket and this was the base of the reply:

    "Due to the variations in means and methods, and because the software must be compatible with all models of the 6000 series, whether they have 1 or 2 SCU's and 2, 4 or 8 panadapters, there is currently not a way implemented in SmartSDR to guarantee that a particular band ALWAYS uses the same antenna, no matter which panadapter or slice it is tuned in."

    So tonight I have been playing around in FR Stack and have a working solution for now. Each memory can be tailored to have the TX and RX antenna port set to 1 or 2 and use a DAX port plus you can link a TX profile too - plus lots of other options.

    You just click on the button and it will go to that frequency. Seeing as I'll be running FR Stack anyway this can just stay on the desktop below to the meter window as below.

    Good it works. Not an ideal solution, but the best for now.
