Eagle Eyes Diversity with one receiver- patch and clover?

* Just read my title- I meant to say one transmitter!

Hey guys, I'm trying to set up my diversity with the Eagle Eyes system. I want diversity with a skew planar and a patch antenna. Is this possible by using one transmitter? I don't want to put another transmitter on my tri, so will I get bad signal if I use a patch with a clover leaf on board?

Thanks

You only need 1 transmitter (and one antenna on board) for it to work as designed. But you do need 2 receivers on the ground station.

Yeah I understand that, but I am not sure how the clover leaf + patch combination will work. I heard from somewhere it is not a very good combination. Is this true?

I'd say it will just favour the SPW. Try a helical on the other Rx, really easy to make.
