978 antenna next to existing 1090?

Can these antennas be in close proximity to each other (e.g. 1-2’) and not materially affect reception of either? I’m considering adding a 978 feed to my existing setup and prefer mounting the 978 antenna close to where the existing 1090 antenna is on a vertical roof support in the attic.

2ft should be fine - nothing you’re likely to notice anyway!
