Diversity using 6700 and Maestro; how to link slices

Can someone explain how to set this up using the Maestro as opposed to SmartSDR on Windows? Especially, how I do this and still have the RIT function, which must tune both slices together? This was trivial to do on my old FT-1000D with the optional 2nd RX module.

I only see extremely old posts on this topic here.

    On the Maestro

    • Turn on Diversity
    • Make sure you have your 2 divsity antennas selected that you want
    • For RIT, press and hold the Green RX button above the big VFO know
    • The Green RIT LED will light
    • Your VFO is now in RIT mode.
    • Clear the RIT by pressing in the VFO knob
    • Exit RIT by holding down the Green RX button and the Greel RIT LED goes dark



  • Thanks Mike, a good start but I need more details:

    When I push the "DIV" button, two new buttons appear to the right of it. "A" and "A DIV". It seems to default to selection "A", however I can alternately select "A DIV"? Please explain this choice. I am seeing blue ANT1 and ANT2 receive antennas, so that's a good sign. In the audio tab, the the DIV controls for slice A are no longer grayed out. Another good sign. I take it that I don't need two slices to make this work, hence "slice linking" is irrelevant. I see RIT works just like it always did.

    Hi Rick

    Yes, this consumes 2 slices.

    You have A and A DIV so that you can control the different noise issues on each antenna. You are using 2 unique receivers, 1 on each SCU.

    WNB, DAX, AGC, Audio Balance, NB, NR and ANF are set uniquely to each SCU/Antenna source.

    If you look closely, you will see A's audio set all the way to the LEFT and A DIV set all the way to the right.
