If you have 3 hd receivers (2 6000 and 1 921) can you split one OTA antenna 3 ways? If so, are there specific requirements like equal length leads, etc.?

Yes you can split OTA all you want. If you split it too much you will have to get an amplifier. I have a 6000, 811, 921 all off one antenna, plus 7 television, 4 VCRs, so my signal from one antenna is split to feed 14 devices. My antenna wire comes in to a splitter distribution amp, the nearby sets are fed (on second floor), one line goes down to the first floor and hits another distibution amp/splitter for the first floor.
