Default How does Stilletto Antennas power effect reception?

I read that the antenna for the stilletto is powered.
I want to know if I place two(2) antennas in a line tied together from one stilletto will that diminish the quality of the reception of each of those antennas?
Is it better to just have one antenna hooked up to one stilletto?
Are two (2) antenna better than one??
Thanks for your interest.

All satellite antennas are powered, Sirius, XM, Dish-Network, DirecTV, GPS. The recievers supply voltage through the coax to the antenna, for Sat-TV the power is supplied from the set-top box or a powered multiswitch(splitter).

Hooking up 2 antennas would most likely not work, or would greatly degrade the reception.
