    The shielded cabling (eg. toughcable) helps reduce possible ESD over the cable and should minimize it as a possible source. I have a NanoStation Loco about 15cm from my ADS-B antenna/USB dongle housed in a IP65 ABS box so I might try with and without the Loco powered on and see if my results mirror yours. Mine is connected with around 10m of toughcable.

    Ok finally had time to do some testing. I don't see any difference to signal strength or detection distance with the Loco on or off. If the problem persists see if you can add some vertical separation between them, or if this isn't possible some shielded cable and connections may be worth a try.

    I don't know where in the world you are but I found a local store that did ToughCable by the meter ($1.20 AU per meter), and the connectors were cheap ($0.88 AU). So for less than $20 AU at worst I've helped reduce possible ESD sources for the NS. If you have the time and money it could be worth researching.
