Post Distance Between TX and RX Antennas on House?

Hi All,

I'd like to install a dual band base antenna (likely no more than 50W at max output) for reporting in to my Skywarn Net and ragchewing. I'd also like to put up a discone or similar wideband RX antenna for monitoring Aircraft, Marine, RR, etc.

I'm assuming I can't put them right next to each other because when I transmit it'll overload the receiver connected to the discone. Is this correct? How far apart should they be on the house?

I guess I have the same question for a random wire or dipole for SWL as I'm considering this too.

Thanks for you advice and help,
