[TowerTalk] Stacking Dissimilar Antennas

Sometime back, I posted an inquiry regarding having two dissimilar antennas on 
the same tower.  In this case, I would have a 4 ele Steppir at 70' and a 3 ele 
Steppir at 35-40'.  
  Initially, I figured there would be an advantage to this, but after much 
feedback from the group, concluded that this would not be worthwhile, primarily 
because of phasing issues.
  But if I don't combine the antennas and simply have them completely separate, 
is there an advantage here in terms of vertical take off angles because of the 
different heights of the antennas (i.e. lower antenna better for short path and 
higher antenna better for long path and short path to farther places)?
  Or am I just spinning my wheels and reaching a point of redundancy?
  Your thoughts are appreciated.
