As the title suggests, how easy it it to cause front end overload damage?
I have a 11m vertical dipole on the same mast as my VHF/UHF Antenna,the boom supplied with the dipole is silly short at around 40cm.
therefore I have these two antennas a school ruler apart (for those of you who have only used computers at school that's 30cm lol)
1. Can the HF transmission overload the front end on the VHF/UHF unit or vice a versa or BOTH.
2. Whats the remedy as I need unfortunately both antennas on this mast, will a longer boom up to a meter really make any difference? Perhaps the use of an antenna switch on the back end of the VHF unit so to disconnect the antenna while transmitting on the other (tbh I've seen inside some of the antenna switches and I've been appalled at the poor construction.
Looking forward to you views, keep it relatively simple, my head hurts with it gets all 'Einstein' on my butt!
