Minimum Antenna Separation KI4SUR on 29/4/21
I recently installed a Broad Band Terminated Dipole (BBTD) antenna on my roof. It works great. However, the antenna is very close to my 2M / 440 antenna. Both antennas are connect to my IC7000 radio. Another amateur suggested that the antennas might be too close to one another and could damage the front end of my radio. The antennas are cross polarized with the 2M / 440 being vertically polarized and the BBTD being horizontally polarized. Is this an issue? I don't want to damage my radio. I've been disconnecting each antenna until I can figure out if this is a problem or not. Thanks!
