At a new QTH and  setting up a dual band quad antenna for 2m and 70cm.

I plan to make the 70cms antenna,the vertically polarised one,  2m horizontal, 
as I believe this is the normal arrangement.
If anyone has practical experience that goes against this assumption I would be 
interested, either direct on on the bb.

I don't have polar phasers, switchable delay lines or anything else its just a 
straight choice, which one goes vertical.
They are on the same boom so I suppose I could go slant for both ?

Main activity here will be phone, VO-52, AO-51, FO-29 plus satellite telemetry 
from cubesats etc.

Thanks in advance
