I currently have a CM4228 and 7777 amp. Since one of my HD signals is Ch 9 (WISH out of Indianapolis), I get a lot of breakup, so I purchased a Channel Master 3671, which I haven't hooked up yet.
I am right in the middle between Louisville and Indianapolis. What I was thinking about doing is Pointing the 3671 towards Indianapolis and the 4228 toward Louisville. Have them on the same mast, but about 5' apart.
Now for the questions:
1. What is the best way to combine two antennas like this? Would a splitter/combiner work to join the two. ((The 7777 had two inputs, one for VHF only and one for UHF/Combo. So that won't work. ))
2. Is Five feet enough of a separation. This will be on a 30' tower so I think it will be strong enough to handle the weight.
3. Is this a dumb thing to do?
Pretty much only use this for HD, so ghosting due to two antennas pointing in opposite directions isn't really and issue (I don't think), but I understand it probably would be for Analog.
So what say the experts?
