How does one switch between two Antennas on one band with 1x3 TGXL?

WC6Y Member ✭✭

I have a Spiderbeam and an EFHW-8010, so I have two options for 20 - 10m. Usually I opt for the Spiderbeam on 20-10m, but it would be nice to quickly switch to the EFHW for receive compare or if the Spiderbeam is pointed in the wrong direction. I had thought that perhaps changing the TX Ant under Settings (see screenshot) from Ant 1 (Spiderbeam) to Ant 2 (EFHW) and hitting Save would do the trick, but the TGXL screen flashes red with "No PTT"

1x3 TGXL firmware 1.1.8, 6600 & PGXL

Thanks for your insights.

    Upgrade to firmware 1.1.20

    There is no Port B on a 1x3 TG XL. It is one input and 3 antenna outputs. You will need to either usee the touch screen on front of 1x3 tuner or the app to select between which antenna you want to use (of the 3 antennas on 1x3).

    The 1.1.20 firmware enables the touch screen for the front of the tuner.
