Yes we just assumed 40 dB Antenna isolation as a ball park
benchmark. Two physical antennas 100 feet aprart can have
values +/- 6 dB or more depending on everything around them.
THus, we did not intend to be rigiorous, but just take an
assumed 40 dB isolation...

Yes the tests were done with two signal generators
and a splitter. Then extrapolated to "two antennas
about 100' apart" by adding 40 dB.
Now I see. you were modeling the 100 foot separation and radios, you
weren't reporting the results of a field test.
Since we were both modeling based on some lab tests of the radios, it's not
surprising that the results are similar.
