I'm using hardly the dualwatch (second receiver) during the contest but usually it's difficult knows the signal come from, anybody knows the way to fix this problem and separate the signals, for exemple main receiver to left ear , second receiver to rigth ear. Thanks.

You can't seperate the right in one ear and the left in the other like Kenwood or Yaesu! the "IF" is shared and the audio balance control is the only option. I have complained to Icom about this for years, but their internal receiver design doesn't allow seperate audio in each ear - I sure wish it did - makes it much easier. Of course on dual-watch (listening to DX statioon send and monitoring othre stations sending on a split frequency, the "blended" audio works very nice.) However when calling cq on a frequency and lisening with the second VFO in dualwatch mode it is hard to tell which freqeuncy the call is coming from. Works great on Kenwood, but not icom, but then again Kenwood doesn't give band info and other neat Icom stuff. Each radio is a compromise and the blended audio is the one for Icom.
