Is there anyway to combine two antennas? I have been having a heck of a time trying to receive all my digital ota, and since the ota on my hr20 will be active soon, I am trying to get everything perfect. I have one antenna mounted in the attic and a Zenith Silver Sensor on top of the entertainment center. According to antennaweb, I am between 4 and 7 miles from all my local txmitters. Compass orientations are 70 degrees for 3 sta, 129, 155, 157, and 164. I am having a hard time aiming to get them all at once. Can i aim my attic antenna one direction and my silver sensor another and then combine and feed into the hr20 and have it work?
That approach works very well with single frequency designed yagis...when you try the same trick with wide-band antennas the results are not as encouraging...however, there is no expense in trying it. You can try using a passive splitter in reverse (the two outputs become the two inputs, and the one input becomes the combined outputs). There are better ways to do this, but if I had the stuff laying around, I would try it first.
