Of course we'd all like to have the antennas pointed the same way. The
40M 90 degree offset started in the 70's because of the KLM 4L 40M yagi,
it seemed to cause destructive interaction unless it was offset.
I was surprised to see someone mention that they had to offset a more
modern 40M design but anytime you've got yagis in close proximity, some
sort of problem is almost inevitable; e.g. destructive interaction, decreased
bandwidth, increased SWR, pattern disruption, etc.
