can any one share info on these antennas.

these were purchased years ago,

the bow tie I believe to be a CM-4228 from fry's
the yagi from radio shack no idea model or specs

could these be stacked to get more gain?
what distance should they be separated?

A1 does look like an original 4228:

A2 is probably a 15-2162:

that is the one.

The yagi is from my early college days, about 1980.
since i remember where i purchased it all i need now is an old radio shack catalog

found it,:D

it's a radio shack u-120 corner yagi found in their 1985 catalog.
no real specs on it's performance, but i suspect with it's range it might help.

I'm thinking i could stack this antenna with a 8 bay bow tie to help with reception issues
