    I have no problem. I have a 1/2 size G5RV center tap tied to the base of my 1090 antenna, but there again I also have a Cavity Band Pass Filter before the dongle...

    Try to route your antenna feeds well apart, the closer the frequency to 1090Mhz the more likely to damage your dongle, so try to mount your 70cms well away from 1090 antenna, also poor SWR can be a problem.

    Note: 2m repeaters simultaneously transmit often using the same antenna at only 600Khz separation... but they can only do that using cavity filters.

      My coco antenna is about 5 metres away from 50W on 2 and 70 into a comet antenna... no filters, no problems whatsoever !
