When working split operation, can I have the DX station in one ear and the rest of the crowd calling in the other ear of my heil headset?? Also when using this system if I TX can I still hear the calling crowd??
Thanks in advance
Hi, Keith. Yes you can do what you're asking. I assume you are using headphones. What I do is create one slice receiver for the DX station and another one for the transmit frequency. Using the L/R slider for the DX slice I slide it to the left. Then, selecting the transmit slice, I slide its L/R to the right. Play around with how much to avoid a "hole in the middle" effect that is still pleasing to the ears. Oh, one final thing you might like to do is select a wider receive filter for the transmit slice. It can help you hear the answering station and get on his frequency faster. With its superb panafall, the Flex 6000 series is the fastest xceiver for "busting" a pileup that I have ever used.
Your "can I listen while I'm transmitting" question has a little more complex answer. If you are running QSK CW ("instant break-in," is what some call it) then you can hear what is going on except when you are transmitting character elements - so, listening between Morse elements, letters, or words, dpeending on how fast you set up RX delay. If you are transmitting SSB or digital, then while you are transmitting you will not be able to hear the band.
