6500 Transverter Connection for Rec Only Input

  • Updated 3 years ago

Need some clarification on my 6500 for a receive only antenna. I currently have a bandpass filter connected to the Rec A in / out. I want to use the Pixel loop for a receive antenna. In the owner’s manual it  mentions that the transverter connection can be used as a secondary receive only antenna connection. Since I also have a 2 meter transverter connected, it would be easy to use a coaxial switch or even a relay to share the transverter connection with the loop. My concern is, once I configure the transverter connection, will I be pumping RF out to the pixel loop when I’m transmitting?

Possibly since there isn't going to be 100% isolation between the two connections.

The Pixel loop can be deactivated on PTT.
