I have a 70mhz transverter which has separate tx and rx connections and needs 0db drive ,am i right in thinking that the transverter output on the 6300 switches between tx and rx and therefore I need a transverter with a single connection or did I read the info in insider wrong?
Cheers

Paul,

Technically, the software will allow you to use ANT1 or ANT2 for the receive port of your transverter (see image below from a FLEX-6300).  In our documentation, we are stating that you cannot use a split IF transverter on the FLEX-6300.  The rationale is that with a RX IF port of a transverter plugged into the ANT1/2 port of a FLEX-6300 opens up the possibility of transmitting 100W of RF into your transverter receive port and harming the transverter.  So the recommendation is to convert to a common IF transverter, but you may use ANT1/2 at your risk.
