I currently have an old ChannelMaster UHF/VHF/FM on the roof with a rotator. Unsure on model, but it appears to have around a 7ft boom. I also have a 5ft VHF high-band Yagi and join-tenna mounted on the same mast under the rotator.

I currently have the Yagi pointing at WKBT (Ch 8) and the rotator pointing the large antenna at KTTC (Ch 10). Doing this, I can pick up all the UHF well, but I am unable to pick up KTTC reliably.

I have also tried pointing the large antenna at WKBT (Ch 8) and the Yagi at KTTC (Ch 10). Doing this, channel 10 reception is better but still pretty much unusable and channel 8 reception is worse than with the Yagi pointing at it.

My choices seem to be one of these three senarios:

1) Buy a larger UHF/VHF antenna like a CM 3671 and point that at channel 10.
2) Buy a larger Yagi like an Antennacraft Y10-7-13 and point that at channel 10 and buy a different UHF/VHF antenna that will get channel 8 better.
3) Buy a larger Yagi like an Antennacraft Y10-7-13 and point that at channel 10, put the 5ft yagi for channel 8 on a seperate mast, and keep the current UHF/VHF antenna for UHF only."]

Also, Channel 50 will be a repeater of KTTC (channel 10), but that is not on the air yet. I cannot pick up analog channel 67 at all from this location, so I don't hold out much hope for channel 50 reception.

Any advice would be appreciated.
