    is it possible using a splitter, to combine two outdoor antennas that point in different directions?

    VERY difficult! You can however get a "UHF/VHF Combiner/separator" and run two different antennas (one UHF only and the other VHF only). Some people have used 2 IDENTICAL antennas and combined them -- but it rarely works correctly.

    I do it. Granted, it depends upon your location and signal levels of your local stations...

    My configuration is a Terk directional + the UHF "remote" antenna both going into a standard splitter/combiner and then into my Dish receiver.

    It's about as simple a 2-antenna configuration as you can have... but might not work well in all situations.

    (That model will only let you pick up 1 station only with the second antenna.)
