Cannot permanently assign the antennas

Foklks,

I am struggling to assign the antenna in the following situation:


(Flex 6600+Flex Power Genius + Flex Tuner Genius + Antenna Genious; Antennas: Steppir DB36 (40-10m), DB18 (40-10m) and RR-33 (20-10m).

Running 4 slices.

I want the following to work:

INPUT A

  • Slice A: DB36 on 40m - no issues, assigned and stay OK


INPUT B


  • Slice B: DB18 on 20m - keeps changing to the RR-33m on TX although showing the DB18 on RX
  • Slice C: RR-33 on 15m - sometimes keeps changing to the RR-33m on TX although showing the DB18 on RX
  • Slice D: RR-33 on 10m - sometimes keeps changing to the RR-33m on TX although showing the DB18 on RX

Other combinations are possible (C and D OK, but B changes on TX), yet I cannot get the stability, except for one odd day...

Spent hours reading the manual and experimenting. Sometimes it works, but hen the slices B C D start chaging antennas....


Is there a way to fix the assigned antennas ?


Thank you.

    On the video I made an error in the desciption - slice B should be on DB 18 but it changes to RR-33.....

    I did not watch your video but If I am understanding what you are trying to do, using one antenna on slice A, input A, that is fine, but it seems you are trying to use 2 different antennas on Input B for slices B, C and D.

    If that is what you are trying to accomplish it cannot be done. The 6600 has two SCUs and can only have one antenna per SCU, period. The AG is such a nice product and greatly simplifies antenna selection per in put and band but again should only allow you to select just one antenna for each for A & B, period.
