What is safe distance between xmit and rx antennas with a Flex6300 using Legal Limit power output? 

If I have a legal limit output on 1 antenna on ant1 output through an amplifier and ant2 port is a separate receive antenna, NOT in full duplex mode, is it safe to transmit 1kw+ while the rx antenna is in the near field. 

Example tx ant is a horizontal 900 foot loop with 1500 watt capability

rx antenna is a dipole for example with both the loop and dipole within 20 feet of each other. 

Are there any internal safety mechanism or relay activity that isolates the RX from the TX port during transmit operations? I am NOT in full duplex mode nor will I be while using amplified power. 

I just don't want to blow ant2 port in RX mode while TX on my amplified ant1 port. 

There are some nights on low bands where I rx better on a dedicated antenna other than the loop.
