[TowerTalk] sharing a choke between two dipoles

I have a crossed dipole (with separate feed lines) at the top of a 
rickety lightweight support..

Can I use the same stack of #31 cores for choking both?  That is, wind 
both coaxes through the cores for the requisite number of turns.

If the cores were lossless this would make a transformer, so shield 
currents on one would be transferred to the other.  But #31 is pretty 
lossy at HF, so maybe it would work?

The goal is to minimize mass up high..
