Question Distance between VHF & UHF antennas?

I have a quick question -- how far apart should my UHF antenna be from my VHF on the mast so they don't cause problems with each other? Thanks!

Not sure of exact distance requirement but I have VHF mounted 2' below UHF on same mast without any problems. Also tried various spacings between 6" and 3' without any noticable interference. Both antennas aimed in same direction on rotor mast.
