Big antennas, high in the sky, are better than small ones, low.

The stacking space you pick will be a compromise, as you are trying to
accomodate 20-10.  Fortunately the performance curves are very gentle. 
For my stack of a TH6/TH6/TH7, the top spacing is 36', and the bottom
spacing is 30'.  The location of guy wires and other physical reasons
dictated the choice of exact locations.  But my examination of the curves
says 30-36' is also a good compromise.  -- Fred K1VR
