    considering dual antennas, what to get?

    No, I think, but I still tried it. I tried stacking the old antennas (putting one directly under the other as seen on some other website) and pointing them the same way at a midpoint between the two groups of towers. I tried pointing the UHF only antenna one way and the combo almost 90 degrees...

    considering dual antennas, what to get?

    I actually do have an old UHF only antenna (a huge arrow shaped Yagi, I think it is called) and tried combining it with the old combo antenna a few different ways. It didn't work. The old combo antenna had a knack for picking up signals from towers it wasn't pointed directly at and it seemed...

    considering dual antennas, what to get?

    I found a solution a few months ago that's been working very well and didn't cost a lot. I bought two Steren ANT-UHF16/PLEG for about $33 then I joined them with an ordinary bidirectional splitter/combiner. I've used TVFool in the past but their info wasn't kept current. Per the Rabbitears link...

    Just curious... can you get WFXR 27-1 (17) Fox ? According to TVFool it comes from nearly the same place as CBS. I'm not an antenna expert but I think your old antenna is highly directional. Might that box below the antenna contain a motor for rotating the antenna to point it directly at...

    considering dual antennas, what to get?

    RabbitEars.Info I have an old antenna but it looks a lot like the Channel Master Advantage 45. My problem is that I can't get a good signal of all the channels I want all the time. More or less, there are two groups of towers and they are almost 90 degrees apart so if I'm really careful I can...
