I have left over Zinwell 6 X 8 multiswitches. Is there anyway to use these for antenna feeds if it can be powered?

They won't do you any good at all as regular antenna feeds. They are designed very specifically to manage and switch DirecTV (only) satellite signals from a multi-LNB dish to multiple satellite receivers.

A good 8 way splitter can be had for a few bucks!

Nope ...

No OTA antenna diplexer builtin to the WB68. And for good reason as it was designed to accommodate and switch the Ka lo and hi intermediate frequency bands along with the Ku IF band.

The Ka-lo IF band is between 250-750 MHz which would obviously interfere with OTA signals diplexed on the same lines.
