I prefer separate antennas. Not having a combiner box is one less thing to buy and one less thing to go wrong. And separate antennas helps ensure that a problem with one system doesn't impact the other system. It's more work to install, but you only have to do it once and it's done. Separate antennas might be more expensive too if the antenna combiner is built into the AIS unit or otherwise included, but an antenna isn't that expensive to begin with, so I think the cost difference shouldn't be a huge deciding factor.
