Hi all, First of all sorry if this question is very stupid or if it was answered before, but I didin't found something like this.
The question is quite simple. Let's suppose I'm using 2 slices (no matter if they are or aren't on the same band). Can I assign one antenna to each slice?

Thanks in advance.

TX yes RX no.

You have one SCU Spectral Capture Unit, so you can only connect one receive antenna to that SCU. You can however, have 4 panadapters or 4 VFOs on different bands on that same antenna.
Multiband antennas on a single coax like a hexbeam or a logperiodic are great antennas to use in this manner.

Other people use a multiband RX antenna, which you could connect to the RXA port, and then use a speccific TX antenna per band.
