     FWIW:  I constructed a portable crossed inverted-V antenna for RACES and MARS work and for Scout demos, etc.  The dipole wires on mine are cut for different bands and connected to one piece of coax but, as applies to your intention of using the combination on the same band, interaction between wires sets is minimal.  

     But to be certain can you model the antennas?  Even using the free demo version of EZNEC http://www.eznec.com/ you should be able to see interaction, if any.

I am thinking of running two commonly fed inverted Vs, cut for CW and SSB to 
get coverage across the full 80 meter band.  I should be able to space them at 
right angles.  Has anyone tried this and if so, what were the results?

Thanks --
