    Hello fellow hams, as the title says I want to stack 2 squalos for 6 and 4m on the same short (4m) mast, mainly for sporadic E. As the physical mounting points are at the end of the boom, I'm thinking mounting them back to back at similar heights so avoiding (to a point), either intruding in each others' capture area.
    Any thoughts would be gratefully received.

    Do you have one 6m squalo and one 4m squalo and are worried about interactions?

    That's correct.

    Halo and Squalo are commonly stacked pointing in the same direction without interference problems.

    Thanks for the reply. As the mast is short I wondered if back to back would be feasible.
