I'm upgrading my radio station my question refers to the antennas'

I plan to install a 2 ell 40m yagi, then a 5 band 10m thru 20m yagi, on top and optional a 5 ell 6m yagi.

Does anyone have a suggestion what the spacing should be?

Hi Scotty KB8APS,

At least one manufacturer, JK Antennas, has offered to model their products and recommend stacking distances.

Another option is to search the Internet and copy what has worked well for others.

This page has good advice, but the distances may be impractical for HF.
