Adding Local Channels

I am considering adding local channels to my dtv package. I am in the champaign IL area. Locals are available, but the ** note on DTV website states I will need a second 18 inch dish. I do have a spare 18 inch dish available to use, I am guessing it would have to be aimed at another sat besides the 101. Is there a list of what's on which bird somewhere? Would I then combine the coaxes with a multiswitch? I am currently using a 2 x4 multisw that has a addinanal input for ant on it. Two go to my r15 the other one goes to my standard bedroom receiver.
Try calling Directv they may install the 2nd dish for free.
