Are the PG antenna outputs dedicated to the inputs, IOW A -> A and B -> B, or can inputs be switched to outputs. If they are switchable, will the be switchable within SmartSDR?

Or, is the designed use that Ant 1 on the Flex goes to input 1 on the amp which goes to output 1 and Ant 2 on the flex goes to input 2 on the amp which goes to output 2?

The amp ports are dedicated. 
Radio Ant 1 > Input A > Output A
Radio Ant 2 > Input B > Output B. 

This is normal operation for So2R.

Sorry, DAVE, if power  (ac) is removed is it still one to one and two to two.  I normally leave ac power off the amp in my remote site until needed so want the input to pass thru to the output one to one and two to two.  On my Expert 2K-FA it only give me input one to one but two goes to SO2R all band port antenna.
Thanks very helpful.

PTT is only needed for initial registration to SmartLink or change SmartLink account.

I have remote relays controlling Power On jack on 6500, AC to 12 v power supply. Right now just 100 watts but I plan to add an amp there.

Second remote going to be installed on Kauai, HI. That will have Alpha 9500 and MonstrIR @ 68 feet.
