I was working 160m tonight and decided to open a slice on 6m, to see if I could hear any auroral activity on my 160m antennal. 

I noticed that when I created the "B" slice and changed to 6m, my 160m signals dropped. I confirmed this by turning off the preamp in the 6m slice - the 160m signals in slice "A" came back up to normal strength.

I think I understand what it's doing, but is there a way around it? I'm going to guess not, since we are after all talking about one set of RX hardware here.
