I have a MP, I have a receive ant hooked up, the K9AY Loop System, on
transit the MP blanks the receive ant input.  I have never had any problem,
all works well.  It is very convenient to be able to switch to receive on
either the transmit or rcv antenna.  Try it, it should work just fine for
you.  GL.........Bob,  K6NV

Would like to get in touch with anyone who did own or does own a FT1000MP
and has used the separate receive antenna jack for a receive only antenna
while using the A or B antenna jacks for the transmit antenna. The manual
does not say if it blanks the receive antenna input when transmitting. This
could cause a problem with RF coming into the receive jack when transmitting
on A or B on the same band. Anyone operating Top Band and using separate Rx
and Tx antennas would likely have done this.
