Don't reduce anything. Load both of them with phasing between them to form an 
array. These towers should be VERY easy to load on 160M -- they will look 
something like 40 + JX, so add enough series C to tune out the X and you're 
on the air! As I recall, you're a broadcast engineer. Right? Should be a 
piece of cake. And you will LOVE the vertical pattern.
