However,  I am not aware that this is a problem in practice, and indeed 
two UK users  report no problems when running a shunt fed tower on 160m, 
whilst  simultaneously listening on HF on another receiver connected to 
the yagi.  I would nevertheless be in interested to hear from users here 
with  practical experience thereof. Should I be  concerned?



Clive, I shunt feed my tower on 160 here and with 1500w most of the  time. 
Tower is 72', mast 8' with 3 el SteppIR at 78' and M2  40M3L at 71'. No problems 
running simultaneous with the other rig on any band.  BP filters are Dunestar
