     I would recommend 5 feet or more if possible.  The more separation the
better although most HF beams won't "see" the 2M antenna.  The exception is
Mosley antennas that seem very sensitive to ANY antennas around them.  In
that case, I wouldn't mount any antennas around it.

     BTW, you may want to check into Towertalk, the tower and antenna
construction reflector.  It has many knowledgeable people on it and is a
terrific source of information for tower and antenna questions.  Send a
