Yeah, that's going to depend on the noise-floor of the receivers.  I've
found that -105dBm receive radios (other technologies) needed physical
separation and cables rated at 60dB of shielding in order to keep
cross-talk down.

The cables from the SMA connectors to the boards are likely pretty leaky
(the board connectors are probably u.fl connectors)
