Hey,


 I am in an apartment currently operates on 2mtr I have an IC2820 and would like to operate that as the dual band radio it is, I am limited on space. I have a mag mount on a file cabinet for the VHF, I am ordering a UHF antenna, I know antenna separation is an issue when they are on the same band however can I put this UHF antenna on the same file cabinet as the VHF and operate safely? or should the UHF/VHF have more separation between them.


thanks
John

Basically a quarter wavelength apart however anything on the same level will introduce some directivity.

Have you considered a Cushcraft AR270B? It's dual band, and works great. I used it in an apartment leaning against a window for years.
