I have used diversity reception going back to the FT-1000D and absolutely love the implementation in SmartSDR. Kudos to FRS!

My station is being engineered from the ground up with diversity in mind - diversity on all bands, all modes, all the time.

Looking forward to future diversity enhancements with great interest.

Hi William, sounds good, but i think in case different DAX channels will be availbale for selection for both slices  - will be significant step forward. I guess this easy request we can address to FRS for further usage with external SW.

This is something I never fooled around with.  I have seen demo's on a 5000 using the diversity control but have no idea how to use tis on a 6500.  Where is the diversity control like in the 5000?

Nick, you can`t do it with 6500 in general, but with 6700 only where exist 2 independent SCU

At the moment not implemented yet, but available as simple diversity mode as it was announced into the roadmap
