Default Distance between antennas

On top of a 20 foot pole, I have mounted a Panarama BS800 scanner antenna. ( 762-894 range ). I would like to attach a TV ( bow tie ) antenna, about 10 inches below the BS800. Will this create any receiving problems with the TV / scanner? thank you for your time

I think the rule of thumb is half wavelength distance at your lowest frequency, so no problem there.

These are both RX-only antennas? If so, you should be fine.
