The diversity option is aimed to hop over the radio more costly.

It is well explained by MeshDynamics:


They also explain the problem (bandwidth, lowest bitrate link) of

"In July 2005, after several failed attempts to legalise software
patents in Europe, the patent establishment changed its strategy.

favor, without any possibility of correction by competing courts or
democratically elected legislators."
