    How far apart would I need my HF dipole to be from my CB antenna (like A99/Imax 2000)?? I don't plan on running 10m at the same time as my CB, though I may have my HF on 40/20m listening and scanning.



    I can space them only about 19'.. CB base would be in separate room on opposite side of mobile home..

    I was thinking of putting my President McKinley w/AM and SSB in my house and use as a base.

    What if I wanted to keep it on same side of house?? I only got about 6' of separation from my endfed or proposed fan dipole..

    If I go with vertical like the Imax 2000 I'm guessing the different planes (horizontal vs. vertical) would cut the interference, but I dunno..

    So interaction with my HF dipole shouldn't be bothered either??
