I would like to use my RXa antenna as part of the DIV option but RXa is not a choice on the pull down... any thoughts on adding additional choices to the menu for the 6700???

RXa is a choice for DIV if you are using ANT2, and RXb is for ANT1.

If RX-A is not an option, it is because that port cannot be used for that slice (SCU).

Essentially if an antenna port is assigned to an SCU (digitizer), then that antenna port can't be used for assignment to a different SCU.  Some ports, like RX-A and RX-B have a direct relationship to SCU1 and SCU2 respectively.

I suspect ANT-1 on the parent slice is connected to SCU1 which is also directly connected to RX-A, making RX-A not available for the child slice.

Got it .. TNX this will take some rethinking as my RX ant. Is on RXa so I guess I could set slice B as my TX active and then use RXa for the DIV combo.... I'll play with it
