I live in an area where the path to my local transmitters is blocked by a foothill. I have a Clearstream 2 mounted outside and it grabs 75% of my locals very well. I have a 2nd antenna in the attic (Winegard 1080) that is getting only my local ABC 15 (it's positioned in a certain way, and gets it at 60% signal strength consistently). The main outdoor Clearstream is picking up both UHFs and VHFs, all I need is channel 15 off of the Winegard. When I use a normal splitter as a combiner it messes up most of my Clearstream antenna channels.

Since Channel Master no longer makes Jointenna, what can I do???

The question is going to be, "Do you have any desired channels on 14, or on (say) 16, 17, 18?
If there's some "guard band" there (which you would also need with a Jointenna), someone like Tin Lee Electronics (in Canada) can make one for you. The costs are dependent on how much space you have above the desired channel, which determines how many stages of filtering are required. You might get by with a couple of small Low-Pass and High-Pass filters.
Call or write them, with some details......
