Autoswitch antenna ports for Xverter use based on band !

I have a VHF (144M) Xverter on RX_A for RX and XVTA for TX, and an UHF one on XVTB/XVTB (single IF ports). Why can't you program in the transverter definitions which ports to switch to, according to band? Ie: If the slice is on 144Mhz, to switch that slice to RX_A/XVTA, and so on?

I'm wracking my brain trying to make a Node Red flow to do this, but many radios natively can select an antenna choice based on frequency band.

    I think you already can but you must switch by BAND and not switch by changing frequency to the new band. ??? At least that seems like the way it works for me. Switching bands by changing frequency preserves the antenna selections of the previous band.

    Profiles work as well. I have a profile for 6M that uses ANT2. Other bands use ANT1. When I load a profile the correct antenna is selected. Oh, and I have a 2M transverter on the XVTR port that is selected when I load a 2M profile. This is on a 6400.

    Profiles worked fine on the Windows version, but were crashing the Mac version. I now have a Node Red flow that looks at the frequency of each slice and selects the antenna ports for me.
