As far as I know, the answer is yes. I don't have anywhere near the experience as some of these other guys do so if someone wants to chime in and correct me, that would be good. But I believe I've read somewhere that it's best to have two identical antennas for UHF if they're connecting into the same feed. Since they're not facing the same direction, they need to be separated by at least 3' with the identical lengths of coax from each antenna to the combiner. Of course, you could run a feed line from each antenna into an A/B switch and just switch back and forth between the antennas, but if you're like me, you won't want to do that.
