I'm looking at the 6600 as my next radio, connectivity and ability to monitor several digi streams concurrently.

I am looking at  running 2 aerial system on the same band monitoring he same band 6m yagi & Big Wheel. Products like the anan range allows grounding on the 2nd ADC on tx to stop overdriving.   Does the 660 support this feature

The diversity capabilities available for the dual SCU models (6700 & 6600(M)) uses both SCUs to digitize two diverse RF signals from separate antennas and the receivers are synchronous (the core requirements for diversity reception).  If full duplex is off, then the antenna not assigned to the transmitter is switched out of the RF signal path.

Are RXA and RXB switched out when duplex is off and transmitter is keyed?

The radios have CE approval.  We will begin shipments to our dealers in the coming weeks.  It shouldn't be too long now.

OK, am I correct in assuming that if I:
- press the Diversity button on SSDR, 
- have my main RX and TX on ANT1 (Ant1 is an OCF dipole) and 
- Ant2 (same band vertical about 150 feet away) connected to the other SO239 connection 
that the second SCU is safely disconnected/grounded or otherwise protected when Ant1 goes into transmit?  I usually run a 1200 watt amplifier on Ant 1

I have searched the Community and found this answer but want to be sure.
