Min distance between two WAP antennas

I have 2 WAPs with ap-ant-17  on the side of a building pointing at  more then 90 degree angles of each other.  How far separated do the 2 antennas need to be to get the least interference?

If they're not on the same channels (which they shouldn't be), they shouldn't interfere with each other at all? Where that's the case, distance doesn't matter.

 

Kudos appreciated, but I'm not hunting! (ACMX 104)

at least it should be 15-20 feet because even on different channels the side lobes of those channels could still interfere
