Antenna Identification help please

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?

A1 does look like an original 4228:



A2 is probably a 15-2162:

Not a good idea.

found it,

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
