I have my C31XR at 93 feet. My XM-240 is below it (as recommended by the
HFTA program for EU) at 73 feet on a gate. with 20 feet of separation I
have noticed no interactions Even when all 3 antennas are pointed in the
same direction or when they are offset. For Sweepstakes last year, since I
also have a C4 here, I put that up below the XM-240 for SS on another gate
at about 42 feet. The C31 and C4 were NOT phased and since the C4 20 m
elements barely had room to turn underneath the top guy wire, I was unable
to put the 40M element on the C-4 so it functioned as a C3E. I had no
interactions between any of these antennas that I could detect. When I spoke
to N6BT he recommended at least 13 feet between the C31 and the XM240..
press on regardless
