The votes are in (thanks to ALL who responded) and the consensus is that a
six meter beam stacked between a TH11 and 402CD should not be the source of
any adverse interactions.  In fact, there were several confirmations that
this was an ideal addition to provide all seven bands from 6M through 40M
in one stack.

Two folks recommended going even further and adding a couple 2M and 450 MHz
beams while I was at it.  The very reasonable logic being that now was the
time to add antennas, not later.

Thanks, again, to all who took the time to respond.

73, Dick
