AG configuration with 3 antennas

Sergey KN7K
Sergey KN7K Member ✭✭

I am posting it under Flex6600 as I do not see a category for Antenna genius.

I completed AG8x2 installation over the summer and here is the conflict I am trying to resolve.

Flex 6600 both Ant1 and Ant2 connected to AG Ant 1 and Ant2 inputs.

I have 3 antennas at the moment :

1st o - 6m monoband

3rd input - Steppir 40-10m

4th output - Vertical 80-160m

When I work 6m and Steppir - all good, Steppir on Ant 1 and 6m Monoband on Ant2 of AG.

When I try to work Vertical (80 or 160) and anything on Steppir both slices switch to Ant 2 and RX going to wide with attenuated signal.

I am using Stacks3 to assign antenna but my assignment should constantly change.

Any suggestions to avoid conflicts between antennas?

Thanks

Sergey, KN7K

    @Sergey KN7K This topic should be in the Station Integration category since it has to do with using the AG. I have moved the discussion to the Station Integration category so it has greater visibility with the Community members.

    Can you post a picture of your SmartSDR screen when this happens?

    Also, can you test without the Stack 3? I am not familiar with the Stack 3 at all, so I don't know just how it plays.

    Hi Mike,

    Both slices basically show the Ant 1 for RX and TX and both in Wide RX, something like that
