It seems to me that you have a bad radio, that is to say a radio with one or more faults in it. You shouldn't be getting the sensation of a shock or heat, and those are possible indications of a short. Direct shorts are sometimes easy to troubleshoot. The intermittent static issue could be an aspect of the same problem, or it could be an independent ...

I think you have a loose wire in there somewhere. It's probably the ground or center lead between antenna and amplifier. The bursts of static might be from the wire making contact or not, or contact with something else. Are the static circles repeatable or maybe it was a coincidence, maybe the way you are holding the radio, you can try holding it upside-down....

The likelihood of an antenna interfering with another antenna diminishes as their respective frequencies get further apart. Typically, if they are on different non-harmonic bands, it won't be an issue, and if they are harmonic, the higher frequency antenna might cause interference on the lower frequency antenna, not the reverse. Dishes are probably above ...

Of course there can be interference but I would guesstimate the probability at about 30%, so that 70% chance that there will be no interference - basically have to try to find out. If there is interference you can move the antenna a little bit and that might even fix it or install a filter that might fix it, or use less power on certain frequencies. I would ...
