shield the E-field ?
#3
E field is designed to detect the electric component of the signal.  Shielding is designed to eliminate the electric component, on magnetic (H field) loops.  The E-field is a 'probe' antenna, and it's effectiveness depends upon "air", and the probe's physical dimensions ... it should be mounted outdoors, say a minimum of 2 meters above ground.  Mine is 7 meters.  And it should be mounted as far away from buildings, noise sources as is practical.  Because of the construction, you're not limited in recommended Cable runs, as recommended for H field... so theoretically you could easily locate the assembly a hundred meters away from the Amp and Controller... the signal delay / power loss / noise isn't the same with Coax as it might be with CAT cable....
The other thing about E field... the system is very sensitive... for example, attempting to run with similar gains to settings for H field will result in 'too much' gain.. the pre-amp gain for RED E field is actually held low by design.  During development, it was noted that 'even a metal beer bottle cap' for a probe will work!

I might suggest this thread, from WxForum net, which basically discusses and explores adding RED E field to an Existing RED H field system.  Might give you some more insight.  http://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=22710.0   There is other 'good reading' in other threads from the Region 3 (Americas) operators as the network grew and we struggled with the construction and learning phases.
Cheers!
