I have read the SSDR manual regarding DAX and Diversity reception. My take away is Diversity reception right now (v1.x) is intended for headfone use only. Also read that DAX channel assignment is on a slice by slice basis. That is no two slices can use the same DAX channel.

Hence, with the DAX constraint, there is no way to use diversity reception with any of the digital modes.

Assuming i have correctly understood how DAX and Diversity, Will DAX be updated in some future V2.x to enable diversity reception to be used to drive the various digital modes?


If i missed something on how V1.x works for DAX/Diversity please explain how it can be used for digital modes.

DAX does not support diversity, per se.  Two slices that are synchronous (linked, working together) are used in diversity mode, one connected to each SCU.  Each slice has it own DAX channel your digital mode program will have to take two independent audio inputs and do the audio "combining"; the radio is just providing the audio
