Thank you very much W1VT that is what I was hoping to find out. Thank you so much.

So I'm in the process of cutting the cord so I got my OTA HD antenna hooked up this weekend to my old DirecTV mount. I then also decided to add a 5' piece of pipe to this as well so I can move my discone antenna from my attic to the top of this mast. So once I got the TV antenna mounted I decided to test out the interference with the TV when I would transmit. I only found it to interfere with 1 channel and this channel is the furthest away from me. It also only interfered on 70cm at 445.825 all of my 2m transmissions didn't have any effect on it. Now granted the 2 antennas are still separate at the moment since I'm waiting for my new coax to come in. I read some posts where people had their mounts done up differently with the TV ontop of 2m yagi antennas but I'm going the other route. Will there be any issues with having the discone on top of the HD antenna? Thank you all for your help with this I just don't want to get too carried away with all of this and find out I end up frying something.

I apologize if this has been asked before. I recently this year got a Wouxun KG-UV950P for my desk at the house. I currently have it connected to my Ed Fong 2m/70cm antenna up in the attic. The Fong antenna works great for what its built for. But I'd like to take advantage of the other bands that the radio provides and my current license provides. So I've discovered the almight triplexers :). But as far as I can tell I can't find one that will cover 2m/6m/10m/70cm What I was hoping to find was one that did both the 2m/70cm on one port and then the 6 and 10 on other ports for their respective antennas. All of the triplexers I've seen on the web have the 2m and 70cm broke apart. If such a device doesn't exist then no biggie but just figured I'd ask first. I've been a ham now for about a year and a half so I'm still learning a lot and my Elmer has been great. Thank you all in advance for your help with this.
