Not to hijack the thread but what is the safest way to run a Dual Band
mobile (used for voice) and a stand-alone APRS system in a car?

Given the above comments about duplexer/diplexer it would be best to run
two antennas. But now I have two antennas in the VHF band that MUST be
within 6 to 10feet of each other given limited space on the top of a car.

Besides getting them as far apart as possible is there anything else to
protect each of the radios from being fried?
