No problem at all, Tom. In general, with radials on/in the ground, more
and longer is better, but neither is critical.
You could also probably feed both verticals from the same coax if they
each resonant on their respective bands. They will act just like a fan
dipole -- that is, the power will go to the resonant antenna, with very
little de-tuning by the other antenna. I plan to do that here once I get a
few more rigging points in trees.
