Using a 6300 here. Is it possible to monitor the 20 meter band with ant 1, and the 40 meter band with ANT 2? When I try although each band shows a different antennae in fact they are both only receiving off of the same one.

It's not possible.  The 6300/6500 has only one ADC.

No.  There is only one SCU (wide-band A/D converter [ADC]) in the radio to digitize RF and only one antenna can be connected to an SCU.  To do what you have described would require a FLEX-6700.

I do use a wideband loop antenna (wellbrook) on the transverter port for receive and band specific antennas for transmit on separate slices.  I've run SO2R using this setup with a 6300.
