Hi Nader,
Place the VHF and UHF antenna as far away from one 
another as possible on the cross boom.
That way you get the smallest problem with desensing 
when you transmit on VHF and receive full duplex on 
Place the two other antennas in between the two large 
I use a 3 meter glass fiber cross boom this way and it works fine.
Also make sure you have mechanical balance in your 
system to avoid unnecessary torgues on the rotators.

>From a point of view of distorting the radiation pattern, 
you can place the antennas very close to one another as 
long as they do not touch one another.

Place the VHF and UHF antennas in X so that the elements 
are not parallel to the cross boom.
