You'll need two lengths of 75 ohm coax, one from each aerial, joined
together at the feeder end; centre-to-centre and screen-to-screen.
To the same point you need a length of 50 ohm coax, length to be 1/4
wavelength multiplied by the velocity factor of the coax used (0.66 for
solid dielectric; 0.86 for semi-air-spaced dielectric).
To the end of the 50 ohm coax, connect the downlead of 75 ohms.
The length of 50 ohm forms a matching transformer between the parallel
75 ohms and the single 75 ohm downlead.
Completely seal the joints!
