You said "stack match". If you are talking about the Array Solutions Stack
Match, you may want to check with Jay about using 75 ohm feed line. His
system uses equal length of 50 ohm feed line from the relay box on the tower
to each antenna. How sweet it is to be able to use the high antenna alone,
the low antenna alone or both antennas together.
