Problem switching between RX antenna ports

Listening to a weak station in E51 this morning on 160 with RX array on RXB of the 6700. Then switched to the small antenna I had on RXA to compare signals but when I switched back to RXB the signal was gone and I noticed the noise floor had gone up as if the attenuator had been switched in. I had to go to the RF Gain slider and move that ( just off where it was and back again) to bring back the proper level for the RXB port. Repeatable every time. Maybe this has already been reported? Using Ver1.0.0

    Can you give us some more information about how many Panadapter/Slices you had open at the time? I'd like to try to duplicate this so we can ensure it is fixed.

    Hi Eric, I had just one Panadapter slice open on 160M cw... AGC-T med and slider around 45. RF Gain preamps on 30 ( yes I have a quiet location and the Panadapter noise did decrease from 0db all the way thru 30db setting.) I had to just move the RF Gain slider from 30 to 20 and back to get the RXB and panadapter noise floor back down to where it originally started after trying the DXA antenna. Hope this helps.
