You'd be better off using receive multi-coupler/pre-selector for both receivers running to a receive antenna on the very top of the mast. Then, use a transmit combiner for the two transmitters running to another antenna that is lower down the mast. Then, if you need to add another repeater to mix, you can easily do that without adding more antennas. Plan ahead and get a combiner that will handle more than your current 2 repeaters.

I did this at one of my sites where I needed 2 repeaters. Once I put a 5 channel combiner in, I added more repeaters and now have 5 repeaters on two antennas. I recommend always putting the receive antenna on top.
