Luc if both antennas are identical and have equal length feedlines to 
the splitter, the result is slant polarization (linear pol slanted at 
45-degrees if one antenna is vertical and the other horizontal).  You 
are better running each antenna to a coaxial switch and chosing 
either one (not both).
