Yes you can, but it won't be easy. You need as much
antenna system isolation as possible, a lot of how
the antennas perform is part of the equation, the
notch Q (quality, number and type), the transmitter
sideband noise and the quality of the receiver front
end (and 3rd order performance) are all factors in
how well the link system plays.
In addition to notch cavities, you'll probably need
band pass cavities on both the receiver and the transmitter.
RF leakage in various parts of the system can also cause
desense. You might also bump that UHF Beam up in size
(number of elements).
