Hi if homebase us 75ohm coax to feed both aerials keep to the same make for obvious reasons use M-OR-T type pl259-connectors for loss reasons; as like a mobile ant same rules. they work really well on ssb etc the radiation patterns are altered so place for the best rx-tx etc not much choice on a car etc. on a motor vehicles make sure the doors are closed checking the vswr and they r well earthed and no shorts on the pl259s.
