Diversity RX balance

  • Updated 2 days ago
I just received my Maestro and am getting used to it.
When in Diversity RX it is not clear how I adjust the volume and AGC level of the "slave" receiver slice.  I use diversity with SmartSDR on the PC and it works great. I can easily adjust the levels on each receiver to match the antennas.
My Diversity rx antennas have very different gain and I need to adjust each independently but its just not obvious to me where I go to change the slave slice levels on the Maestro.

thanks, de steve ve6wz

When in diversity mode, when I go to the audio settings in the menu Slice A Div is available, But Slice B Div is grayed out.  I do hear slice B in the other ear, but just cant adjust the levels.

Solved.
Operator error...misunderstood terminology.  I post this in case others have a similar question.
Thanks to Eric KE5DTO at the help desk for a quick solution.  I opened a help ticket and got an almost immediate response.

To adjust each "slice" when in diversity RX (DIV) mode, Turn on DIV, and then in main Menu>Audio the two slices associated with diversity RX are: Slice A, and Slice A DIV. I (wrongly) assumed it was Slice B that controlled the diversity second slice.

Thumbs up vote for the quick response and patience from the help desk.

What does the A DIV button vs the DIV button do on the 6600M menu screen?  Obviously DIV enables two slices for diversity reception.  I can't detect any difference between DIV and A DIV.
