    Dual diversity

    Hello

    I plan a dual diversity ground station for 5.8 and 1.2GHz as I use both frequencies on different copters.
    So my plan is to have one main switch that provides power to the monitor , the eagle tree diversity and the selection switch. Then I want to solder a 5.8 and a1.2 on on each of the two video ins. The selection switch (1/0/1) then provides power to either both the 5.8 or 1.2 receivers at the time.

    Do you see any potential problems with that?

    So I power either both 5.8 or both the 1.2 at a time, but I wonder if there is a problem with the other two receivers connected, even if they are not powered.

    Thanks

    You might want to use a dual pole switch and switch the video inputs as well. There will be an impedance mismatch when paralleling cables that might be solved easily with switching the video inputs as well.

    If it is broken, fix it. if it isn't broken, I'll soon fix that.

    Do I only need to switch the signal or do I need to switch the ground as well?
    I guess the signal should be sufficient?

    Just the signal should suffice. The ground should be universal.
