Frequency diversity by accident

The other day I found something neat by accident. I was listening to the W1AW CW bulletin on 7.0475 and also listening to 20 meter CW with the other receiver. As it turns out I tuned across 14.0475 and noticed the same CW signal, so I ended up listening to the same station on 2 different bands and frequencies. I split the audio with one receiver in the left ear and the other receiver in the right ear. It was pretty neat copying the same CW bulletin on 2 different bands at the same time. When QSB hit the signal on 20 meters, I noticed the signal on 40 meters picked up the slack. This particular configuration is a good example of frequency diversity, which isn't that common in the HF spectrum, but it serves to illustrate how versatile the receivers are in the 6500/6700. In my particular configuration, I was using a 40-10 meter ground plane and I had the receivers dialed down to those wonderful 50 hertz filters.
