Two Antennas for receive and transmit on 6400?
I have two antennas (20-meter dipole and Cushcraft R7) and would like to operate them for both transmit and receive on my 6400 with the Maestro.
When I use an antenna switch and change from one antenna to the other on ANT1, the Flex has difficulty tuning the second antenna, though both antennas are quite resonant on the frequency. I wonder if this is the purpose of having a second antenna input/output on the Flex? I have read the manual and haven't found anything specific about this situation.
Using the antenna switch to select one antenna or the other when connected to my FT-990 poses no tuning or operating problems. Why is there a difference with the Flex 6400?
