1/2 wavelength on the higher frequency band is normally all that's required for 
stacking horizontally polarized yagis.

That would be a mere 40" between 6m and 2m, and only 13-1/2" between 2m and 
70cm.  More is great, but this is about all that's needed.

Hello, Firstly allow me to say what a great group of guys and Gals, we have 
here in the forum, all the wealth of knowledge and wisdom I have picked up by 
such a breed of fine individuals should help me some day return the same 
knowledge to some new comer of this hobby we call "Ham Radio"

Ok now that my brown nosing is out of the way, its my turn to pick the great 
minds here...

I plan to put 3 yagis on one tower, one yagi is a home built 19 element with a 
corner reflector for 440 Boom length on this puppy is a mere 8 feet. Below that 
yagi I plan to place a 8 element 2m Yagi with a boom length of 14 feet and 
finally I have modded my home brewed clone of the Cushcraft A505S boom length 
is some 17 + feet. Now my question is what should I have both ideally, and 
minimally for spacing's between each yagi, feel free to reply either on or off 
this reflector, I personally hate it when it is done off the reflector it helps 
others at the same time , so do what ever pleases you most.
