Gary...  I also live in a "high RF environment"  TV stations, pagers, etc.
I put a high-pass filter between my 2.4 GHz antenna and preamp.  It's been
several years, but I think the cutoff freq was around 1.5 GHz.  It was
relatively easy to make a high-pass with low loss.  My attempts at making
low loss band-pass filters of various types haven't turned out so well.

If you've got a good low loss cavity filter, you're luckier than most of us!
