    My Groundstation Light

    I took one of my 1.3Ghz vRx and mounted it on my tripod. The 5.8Ghz repeater vTx (ImRC 25mW) is mounted directly on the vRx...
    You guys think the 5.8Ghz will impact on the 1.3Ghz video this close togheter?

    My repeater is mounted within 10" of my vrx. Exact same components. I haven't noticed any issues.

    Yep. Now I'm no expert by any means, but I did fly out to 2 miles with my setup (pepperbox, mad mushroom, 5.8 repeater, eagle eyes diversity) and had great picture the entire time.

    I disamble my diversity GS, as I'm waiting for parts to complete my new Rangevideo GS with 7.5Turn helical on tracking.

    No problem flying past 10km in low altitude with my diversity setup.

    I got a bit unsure with my "GS Light", as the repeater antenna nearly touches the 1.3G antenna

    My old setup:

    It may de-tune the antennas a bit having them close together but you'd only notice it at range.

    I can test it next time. I can simply turn the repeater with the antenna down too.
