Yes, and they will work fine if pointed in two different directions,
like one to JA and the other to EU.   The feedlines may be of random
length.  However, if you expect to get stacking gain with them pointed
in the same direction, you are (usually) out of luck.  That's when you
need them on the same tower and with matched feedlines.

Be sure to change out all the plastic caps and update the antennas to
the latest 'vent hole in the small tubing' configuration.  You will be
happy with the antennas.  Good luck!
