Sorry, I think I should have mentioned my constraint that makes the problem particularly interesting - 1 97-foot tower, all antennas either on or supported by it (including a shunt feed for 160)

The resulting system seems to work quite well, at least at 100 watt power levels, but I realized I don't have a good sense of what experienced SO2R ops and station builders consider to be "good enough."  In particular, how close to the harmonics of your transmitter frequency should you be able to listen effectively with the second radio?
