FlexRadio 6700 and Maestro diversity and the K6TU Control

The Maestro diversity function is awesome.  I've discovered that Stu's K6TU Control app for the iPad allows AGC control of the diversity slice.  

I use diversity all the time at my location.  I enjoy hearing the different antennas pick up a desired signal from one or the other antenna as the bands change.  Having access to all AGC functions helps me balance the noise levels in both ears.

The Maestro AGC control works the main slice and K6TU Control shows the diversity slice's adjustments including the AGC.

An interesting discovery with the K6TU Control app is that the Maestro is using 4 slices when both A and B slices are active with diversity.  Our 6700's allow 4 slice information to be available on the Maestro.  The extra diversity slices are slaved respectively to Slice A and B.

To the best of my knowledge there has never been this feature set available to any Ham at any time prior to FlexRadio's 6000 series.

Curious which Ipad are you using? Ipad 12.9 pro or the Pro 9.7 or Ipad Air 2 or other?

Think of getting one just haven`t decided which one.

I have a iPad Air 2 and a iPad 12.9 pro

I normally use the big one most of the time because I like the bigger screen which is easier on my aging vision..

My only real complaint is that it is HEAVY

Both will easily run any of Stu's apps as well as others in the works

The K6TU Control app idoes not need a powerful iPad unlike the other K6TU App.

My iPad 2 is perfect.
