 I have placed 2 mobile antennas on one feed line. I am trying to find out if this will be a very directional antenna system or omni directional.  The swr seam to be very low over a broad band.  I have no antenna modeling experience or sofeware. Any help will be greatly appreciated.  One feed line approx 18' to vehicle mirror bracket with beehive antenna mount. I used 1" X 1/4" x 7" aluminum stock to mount antennas 6" apart.  (THE ANTENNAS ARE 6 INCHES APART) not feet

If you have 2 antennas mounted in close proxinity to one another they will detune each other to some extent so you should check the SWR with both antennas installed and reajust if needed.
