Receive Ant 1 and Ant 2 Reverse Internally

  • Problem
  • Updated 5 years ago
  • In Progress
Antenna 1 and Antenna2 Flip Flop
Receiving is Normal using Ant1
If I change to Receive Ant B all is still OK
Change Back to Receive Ant 1 all is still OK
If I Change to Receive Ant A , All is OK
If I then change back to Receive Ant1,
Signals are way down around - 130 Dbm
If I then switch back to Receive Ant2
Normal Receive is active now on Ant 2
Antenna 2 does not have anything connected to it
The only way to correct is to Drop SmartSDR and then Re-Connect.
The 6700 Does not need to be powered off and back on
The problem will repeat each time it is tried.

There are many (known) issues with the antenna matrix switching in the current release. Hold tight - changes are on their way in a future release.

This is a known issue and a high priority one to fix.

One Small correction to my Post...
The Tests were on 40 Meters...
The reason I did see signals down -130 Dbm was that I did have a 6 meter Beam
connected to Ant 2...

However: normal reception did switch from Ant 1 to Ant 2

I hope I have explained this in enough detail
