Antenna Clearence Distance from other Antenna

Post by Need1kill » Tue Oct 07, 2014 8:02 pm

Hi guys. Installed a Uhf 477MHZ base antenna and Tv Antenna on my Caravan to take away at Xmas for a few weeks.
Just been reading up on antenna clearance distances. Here's the pic of the setup so far. I read I should drop the tv antenna down below the uhf antenna by a meter , or should I just mount the tv antenna on other side of van 2 meters away. I have a pole setup on both sides of rear of caravan. Thoughts and suggestions welcome :)

I would think that current setup would be ok. I would buy a UHF SWR metre and check the SWR, if its good no need to change. UHFSWR metres are fairly inexpensive these days.
