Thanks for the detailed explanation of diversity.
That was very educational

For field day a few years ago I used a 40m 3 element wire beam headed west, and a dipole headed N/S. We cleaned up!
These days I don’t have the property. Got one directed N/S, and one headed west.
Diversity works great. Under qsb conditions signals seem to “rotate” between the two receivers.

Yes, they have different horizontal and vertical patterns, so the signals they receive are less likely to be equal in magnitude (strength), and may also be a bit different phase, but likely less than what results from separation by a significant fraction of a wavelength.

Maybe I worded it wrong. I use a vertical and a horz antenna for diversity. That IS receiving to different paths so to speaki.
NOISE I also select NONE DIVERSITY RX antennas being either the low noise Mag rx loop or the Horz roof mounted loop.Sounds good to me.
