Antenna 1 and Antenna2 Flip Flop Receiving is Normal using Ant1 If I change to Receive Ant B all is still OK Change Back to Receive Ant 1 all is still OK If I Change to Receive Ant A , All is OK If I then change back to Receive Ant1, Signals are way down around - 130 Dbm If I then switch back to Receive Ant2 Normal Receive is active now on Ant 2 Antenna 2 does not have anything connected to it The only way to correct is to Drop SmartSDR and then Re-Connect. The 6700 Does not need to be powered off and back on The problem will repeat each time it is tried. Ken W9IE

    There are many (known) issues with the antenna matrix switching in the current release. Hold tight - changes are on their way in a future release. This is a known issue and a high priority one to fix. Stu K6TU

    One Small correction to my Post... The Tests were on 40 Meters... The reason I did see signals down -130 Dbm was that I did have a 6 meter Beam connected to Ant 2... However: normal reception did switch from Ant 1 to Ant 2 I hope I have explained this in enough detail Ken W9IE
