I have a 6500. I would like to use one antenna on ANT 1 on one panadapter.
I would like to use another antenna on ANT2 with another panadatper.
Seems simple enough.  The manual is no help. The antenna configuration section might make some sense if each model was discussed instead of them being scrambled together.0

Both Connor and Rob are correct.  The data from an SCU is used to create a panadapter display. There is only one SCU in a FLEX-6500 and it can only be connected to one RX antenna (either RX-A, XVTR or one of the ANT-x connectors) at a time.
