I think I heard once that the politically correct term for brown nosing is
now "Networking" :-))

As to your question, take a look at the spacing recommendations from
GM3SEK's very good treatise on the subject. Here is the link: 

Also on this site are links to "other references" that are very informative.

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
