I've noticed that when I transmit on my HT when I'm watching TV (OTA), the signal drops and the screen goes blank (or digital "static") and then returns when I stop. I've replicated the issue by artificially causing a signal loss on the TV by either covering the antenna or disconnecting it.
Right now it's annoying, however, my intention is to mount the antenna (it's an outdoor Omni that I've been lazy and haven't mounted and run cable for) and it will then be within 30 feet horizontally of my VHF base station antenna. My concern is that I could burn out the TV or amp (built into the antenna) when on a net. I've never tested to see if the TV is currently impacted by my base station, the TV is downstairs, Radio is upstairs, which makes observation difficult.
I imagine I need some sort of band pass filter, but I'm not having any luck with my Google-Fu. Am I overly concerned? Do you have any specific or general recommendations?
