Antenna selection out of sync w/ slice receivers

This is probably just a (very minor) display bug (?) but when playing with FM on 2 meters and going back to 40m ssb (etc, etc), I happened to notice that the slice receivers show XVTR but if I select the ANT button on the left side of the panadapter, the antenna is ANT1. If I select XVTR on the slice receiver and change it to ANT1, it just changes the display to correctly reflect the correct antenna, but there was never really a problem other than the display on the slice receiver.

Not sure this explains the issue sufficiently but figured I'd report what I noticed. Let me know if I can provide any other details that might be helpful.

Oh bah, long day. That's the transmit antenna, not receive. No problem here, move along. :-) Wish I could delete my own thread... lol

I came across the same issue but have to do more research as to whether there's a problem here. I was checking out my transverter settings then went back to HF. Tried making a few calls and noticed I had no power out from my amp. Found out the ANT1 had been changed to Xvrt and did not go back to Ant1 when changing back to HF

There are still a few antenna switching issues when using the 2nd Nyquist zone in a FLEX-6700 after switching to and from 2m.  Please refer to the Known Issues section in the Release Notes.
