    1313Apparently the switch that selects which antenna transmits tends to have about a 10dB-15dB attenuation on the non-transmitting antenna. So there is some power that goes to that non-transmitting antenna. Also, if you see fluctuations in output power levels of about that amount on one antenna, then it may be diversity kicking in.

    15 You will definitely want to disable transmitter diversity '''if you only have one antenna connected'''. Otherwise 50% of your broadcast and unicast packets (ARP, OSPF) will go out the wrong antenna. (See r1430, #326, #168.)
