Default Antenna Selections Per Slice

Is there a way to always use ANT1 for RX and TX on Slice A and ANT2 for RX and TX on Slice B.  I want to make this the default setting for antenna choices.  I am using two panadapters.  One for Slice A and one for Slice B.  I have set the antennas that I want for each band on each slice but the antenna selections change once the band changes on the other panadapter ? They wont stay put.  Very annoying behavior.  Is this something that can be done with a profile ?  Thanks -Joe

If your radio only has one SCU then the answer is no. The 6300, 6500, 6400 all have one SCU.
Both antenna ports run into the same single SCU

It does take getting use to. Just save your set-up in a unique global profile.

My default profile (6600M) has 1 slice in the top, and 3 in the bottom, Slice 1 Tx/Rx on ANT1 and slices 2-4 Tx/Rx on ANT 2. When I load the profile I get exactly what I saved. I've also made about a dozen other profiles that have different variants with different antenna combinations.

Good luck !
