I am using DDUtil to tune my SteppIR. Works great. It is connected on ANT1. I now connected a vertical on ANT2. Added a new panadapter with ANT2/ANT2 immediately, the SteppIR gets retuned. How can I make DDUtil aware of the fact that SteppIR is only on ANT1?
Andy, I have spoken with the author Steve K5FR about this some time back. DDutil core functionality is based around the active slice, so the steppir is going to tune to the current active slice.
You have another option. you can use a USB serial interface associated with a slice. (with a flex 6000 series radio). if you do that, you can associate that serial port with say slice A, and when you open slice B it will not trigger the steppir. But you will lose features like the retract elements, and reverse and other advanced features. It will simply track.
Using this method, you will need a steppir control cable (it has a slightly different pin out).
