Where does diversity reception fall on the Roadmap timeline? This is something I purchased the 6700 for and has proven to be very useful for weak signal work.

Larry,

Two of the diversity forms we discussed -- the linked slice or simple diversity method and the optimal combining method -- made the cut. The first method we plan to do in v1.3 and the second is more of what we call a science experiment. In other words, we want to do some research and testing to find out what works best before we commit to a date. When we do this, we generally do not put the item on the roadmap because we do not want to have to come back and say "well it doesn't look like it will make xyz release after all." Having said this, we have already started work on optimal combining and the quicker that work comes to conclusion, the quicker you will see it in the software. If you'll remind me in a couple of months, I'll provide another update on where we are at that time.

We should be publishing a new roadmap right around the end of this month.
