I have read everything from 39 to 72 inches stack distance for 2 of these antennas...What is the correct distance ?

The stacking distance also depends on the height above ground. Typically you want to eliminate the useless lobe that goes straight up.

In a mobile situation you have a height limit.

Msquared suggests 82 and 132 inches as the heights of each antenna.
