How can I set different RF Gain for the second antenna in diversity mode?
Here's the situation: I have a 6600 with a receive-only magnetic loop attached to RXB with my normal antennas attached to ANT1. The magnetic loop needs 32db of RF gain.
If I start with Slice A attached to ANT1, then click the DIV button, it opens up Slice D with ANT2 (nothing attached there). I then click to change Slice D to RXB but the slice D signal is weak because of the need for RF gain. But if I click ANT in an effort to change the RF gain of RXB, it does not show up - it only allows me to change the RF gain of ANT1, ANT2, RXA, XVTA or XVTB. It does not show an option to change the gain for RXB and the second SCU.
A clumsy workaround seems to be as follows: Open a second panadapter (which presumably uses the second SCU), delete the two slices on it, and then select its ANT button and then change the RF gain of RXB to +32db.
What is a non-clumsy way to set a different RF gain for the second antenna in diversity mode? In other words, how can I independently set the RF gain for the two SCUs?
