No, that's not it. The phasing concern with stacking dissimilar
antennas is that the "zero phase" point the antennas will be in
different positions horizontally. That requires an additional section
of "delay line" be inserted into the feed path to one or the other
antenna to bring them into phase.
The phase difference can be modeled or it can empirically determined
