Since my PG-XL is now on the way, want to know if I can connect Ant1 on 6500 to Input A on PG-XL and then connect Ant2 on 6500 to Input B, allowing me to continue to maintain control over my 2 primary antennas ? I operate mostly SSB (Small Scattered Brain).
Bernie, if I understand what you are trying to do I think the answer is yes. It sounds like you have two antennas and have them set up in the radio to be used on different bands or sets of bands. Now, with the PGXL connected as you described, your radio will be sending drive power and PTT commands to the amp on the same corresponding antenna port as it did before based on band and since they are mapped 1 to 1 and 2 to 2 it should work with no external switch required. However, if you need to connect antenna ports 1 to 2 or 2 to 1 some type of external switching is necessary.
