Re: Where to place passband filter in signal chain?

Try the AMSAT mode J Desense filter at:
I haven't tried it personally, but it is designed specifically to solve the problem you are experiencing.

Others have reported success using diplexers to combine the rig's signals onto a single coax and then again to seperate it for the V and U antennas.  If you have any of these laying around this might be worth a try first.
