I generally agree with everything you post but I have to say Hmm…. here? I have been using VHF True Diversity wireless systems for years.
True diversity requires two separate receivers (at least the RF section) and that the antennas be 1/4-wavelength apart. At VHF frequencies, that is about 15-inches.
There are some VHS Wireless mics advertising as “diversity” receivers that sport two antennas into a single receiver. While this arrangement does offer some immunity from dropouts due to phasing and multipath, it’s not true diversity. I suspect that they are careful to not advertise them as “true diversity”.
