Correct, you can only receive from one antenna at a time. If your RX
frequencies of interest are reasonably near in frequency, lets say 40
MHz, you can use multiple DSPs in the FPGA as a kind of 2 channel

You can set the subdev/frontend spec to "A:0 A:0", this will map the
frontend A:0 to both DSP0 and DSP1. If you setup the USRP source for 2
channels, DSP0 will be output 0 and DSP1 will be output 1.

Be careful with the tune_request so that you are setting the rf
frequency to the same setting, but with different target frequencies to
get the DSPs to shift appropriately. There should be some mention of
tune request in the docs inside the USRP source block properties dialog
in GRC.
