HI, i have a issue, ex: you are operating with ANT= ANT1, changing it on RX A, and starting change RF gain - input signal will reassign into the ANT2, try mentioned manipulation again - signal came back into the ANT1 circuit - ?

Sergety,
If i understand your method correctly, then I can not duplicate it..
What radio are you using? What version of Software ?
Can you repeat the fault after rebooting the radio and restarting the software ?

( I'm using 6500 and 0.13.10 software. )

Hi AL,
i am was wrong, following manipulation valid:
You are RX on "ANT1", switch to the "RX A" next switch to the "ANT1" and you lost signal on "ANT1", but signal still exist on "ANT2". To come back with signal on ANT1->switch to the "RX B" and now back to the "ANT 1" - signal on "ANT 1"

Maybe it's a 6700 problem, I can not reporduce on my 6500 / 0.13.10... Can anyone with a 6700 duplicate ?

Sergey,
I can now reporduce it...
ANT1>ANT2>RXA>ANT2 received is listening on ANT1 .. It might be different on the 6700...

I guess I don't every loss signal on ANT1 but do have it on ANT when I shouldn't.

There are numerous issues related to antenna switching (see the caveats in the release notes for SmartSDR v0.13.10). This is a known issue and is slated to be fixed in a future version of SmartSDR.
