Configuring AIR-SAP2602E-E-K9 for Transmit/Receive Antenna

Any help on how we can ocnfigure the Transmit and Receive Antenna via CLI.

I am trying to configure left for receive and right to transmit and I have four antennas as it shows :

     Test_lab(config-if)#antenna ?

  a-antenna     use antenna A

  ab-antenna    use antennas A and B

  abc-antenna   use antennas A, B, and C

  abcd-antenna  use antennas A, B, C, and D

  gain          Configure Resultant Antenna Gain

The CLI link for 15.2(2)JA isnt matching it as per :

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/access_point/12.4.25d.JA/Command/reference/cr12425d-chap2.html#wp3103507

Any suggestions?

-Thanks

That is for older AP, not for the newer ones.

I agree with Steve... there is no benifit for having one antenna recieve and the other transmit.  If you don't want to use all 4 and have diversity, then choose what you want to use.  IF you have two antenna's then choose:

ab-antenna    use antennas A and B

Thanks,

Thanks Stephen/Scott for your inputs.

We have a requirement to do this now, but the command on interface dot11radio 0|1 show antenna command and selection of a,b,c or d.

I dont see any option to select either transmit or receive?

Is it supported on SAP2602 platform? I am running latest IOS 15.2(2)JA, is it supported on this? Is the keyword receive/transmit removed? Or any other command it needs?

-Thanks

Joe

since each antenna is a radio, it should be tx/rx when you select a/ab etc.  no further command needed
