I can't locate the source, but I think you should be aiming for 18 inches minimum.

Well I have had another look, and although I am sure I have seen this written down somewhere on the web, I cannot find it. So if I were you I would treat it as unverified until you get some more input on your question.

This filter is supposed to help though if you do have problems

I have one of those actually and planned on using it. I can, if necessary, swap to 5.8 GHz for video. But I really was trying to build this for long range. So 1.3 GHz is the logical choice. But I'll have to see if the separation is enough for GPS lock or not.

Thanks for the suggestions.
