RX Loop for 6000 series

Apologies if this has been addressed. A search was inconclusive.

Do the 6000 Signature series radios have a dedicated RX loop like the earlier 5000a did?

I want to be able to insert RX only accessories to the RX coming from the primary TX antenna. Can this be done with the 6000 series radios? My basic need is blocking energy of a nearby 1550Khz broadcast station from overloading the radio front end. Its 50kW and <2mi away line-of-sight.

    The FLEX-6500 has one such loop and the FLEX-6700 has 2 (one for each SCU). The other models have XVTR inputs that would allow an RX only antenna connection, but not a loop.

    My flex 6700 has that capability, not sure about the other models.
