Scherrer UHF LRS x Futaba 12FG/R6014FS

I have a doubt, give me a advice please.

I just bought a Futaba 12 FGH 2.4 with a R6014FS dual antenna receiver and i already have 2.4ghz amplifiers (i have a 2W, 10W and a 40W 2.4ghz amplifiers) + 2.4 GHz 23dB High Gain Directional Grid Parabolic tripod mounted transmittion antenna on the ground + 2 x 18db 90║ on the plane. The video downlink is a 1500mW 12v 1.2Ghz transmiter (56g) or 4000mW 1.2Ghz with a pathed receiver antenna + antenna tracker in the ground.
I can use them with no problem as i live in a no populated/isolated area.
Can and should i use a Scherrer UHF LRS RC System for extreme long range flight ?
It think not because i think it will skrull with the FAAST codification of Futaba┤s system.
Will i have better range with the Sherer + 7w or with my 2W/10W/40W 2.4gHz ?
What do you think ?

I intend to keep the 2.4Ghz futaba codification and for this what is the connection/plug/mod i should use to connect the futaba antenna to the amplifiers ?
I can even split the antenna output and put 2 different high placed antennas do try a diversity pattern, how to do it ?

Thanks in advance for replies.
